RedHawkey takes a look at former Miamians playing hockey around the world.

NHL: Boston forward Reilly Smith has become one of the most well-known Miami graduates in professional sports with his breakout season.

Smith has jelled with linemates Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron and has 18 goals and 20 assists in 56 games. He had nine NHL points in 36 games with Dallas before the Tyler Seguin trade.

San Jose Sharks forward Tommy Wingels is also having a breakout season. Wingels posted 13 points in 42 games as a rookie in 2012-13, but he is 11-18-29 in 53 games this season.

Wingels netted the overtime game winner on Feb. 5 in a 2-1 win over Dallas.

AHL: Texas forward Curtis McKenzie is tied for seventh in the AHL in scoring with 43 points.

McKenzie leads all AHL rookies in points and racked up four assists in a win over Charlotte on Jan. 17.

Forward Andy Miele is a spot ahead of McKenzie with 19 goals and 26 assists.

Miele has a goal and four assists in his last two games.

Defenseman Chris Wideman racked up 14 points (3-11) in January, and he scored his sixth goal of the season at Portland on Feb. 1.

Wideman had 18 points in 60 games as a rookie in 2012-13 but has 34 points in 45 games this season.

Iowa gorward Marc Hagel scored his first four AHL goals in a seven-game span Jan. 12-25. Hagel started the season in the ECHL but was promoted after going 9-8-17 in 21 games with South Carolina.

Evansville’s Trent Vogelhuber returned the lineup on Feb. 4 after a broken leg derailed his season. He has one assist in five games.
