Sidney James Smith (July 11, 1925 – April 29, 2004) was a National Hockey League left winger who played with the Toronto Maple Leafs for 12 seasons. He was the Leafs team captain from 1955 to 1956.

Playing career

Born in Toronto, Ontario, and attended De La Salle Academy, Smith began his career in minor leagues in Toronto and later with the Oshawa Generals in the Ontario Hockey Association.

Having played 45 games in two championship seasons for the Maple Leafs, he spent most of the 1948–49 season in the AHL with the Pittsburgh Hornets before he was called back to Toronto. After playing just one regular season game Smith scored an hat-trick in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals to help Toronto to a four-games sweep of the Detroit Red Wings.

Smith had six consecutive seasons with 20 or more goals, a distinction held by the great Gordie Howe.

Smith retired in the 1957–1958 season and later became a player-coach with the Whitby Dunlops, a senior team in the Ontario Hockey Association in 1957. They won the Allan Cup in 1957 and the 1958 World Championship.

Smith played 601 regular season NHL games scoring 186 goals and 183 assists for 369 points. In 44 play-off games, he scored 17 goals and 10 assists for 27 points.
