Left wing Otto Joseph Schmidt was used by the Boston Bruins for a couple of games in 1943-44. He was a solid positional player who could contribute a few points in a career spent mostly in the minors, especially the USHL.
Born in Odessa, Saskatchewan, the older brother of Jackie Schmidt played junior with the Regina Abbotts. He was recalled to the NHL while he was in the midst of a fine rookie pro season with the EHL's Boston Olympics. In 1944-45, Schmidt hit a personal high with 35 goals before he moved on to the USHL.
After four years mostly with the Fort Worth Rangers Schmidt spent most of the 1048-49 season with the Springfield Indians of the AHL. He then played some senior hockey in BC and retired in 1952 after scoring 18 goals in 32 games for the Vancouver Wheelers.
