Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Randy Smith
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native Randy Smith was born on July 7th, 1965 and developed into a top-notch sniper with his hometown Saskatoon Blades in 1985-86 when he scored 60 goals and 146 points in 70 games. That season he also made his NHL debut when he joined the Minnesota North Stars.

Smith played just one game for the North Stars and was not a factor with no points or shots on net. The following season, his first official year as a professional he played two more games with Minnesota and was again held off the score sheet. While his second stint proved to be his last, Smith continued his career at other levels.

Smith spent the next three seasons primarily in the International Hockey League then joined the Canadian National Team in 1990-91. Smith played two years with Team Canada and performed in multiple World Championships as well as the 1992 Winter Olympic Games where he won a silver medal.

In 1992, Smith took his skills overseas and signed to play in Germany with Klagenfurt then returned to North America to sign with the Las Vegas Thunder of the IHL the following year. After producing just 14 points in 53 games with the Thunder, Smith elected to again head to Europe to finish his career.

Smith signed with the Edinburgh Racers of the British Super League and for the next six seasons Smith became one of the top scorers in British hockey as he piled up points with three different franchises.
