A BIG-GAME PLAYER, BOBBY SMITH PUT HIS TALENT ON DISPLAY IN MONTREAL, HITTING THE 80-POINT BENCHMARK AS A CANADIEN IN THREE SEPARATE SEASONS.

A gifted playmaker, Bobby Smith stood out for his creativity on the ice as well as his numerous superlative postseason performances.

Acquired from the Minnesota North Stars in 1983, Smith began producing almost from the moment his plane landed, tallying 63 and 56 points in his first two seasons with the Canadiens.

In 1985-86, his third season in Montreal, Bobby Smith played a major role on the way to the Habs' 23rd Stanley Cup triumph. At about the midpoint of the third period of the fifth and final game against Calgary, he beat Flames goaltender Mike Vernon, scoring what proved to be the goal that allowed the Canadiens to sip from Lord Stanley’s Cup.

During his seven-year stay in Montreal, Smith proved to be a potent offensive force. After a memorable junior career in the OHA, where he set a single-season points record and was named 1978’s Player of the Year, the big forward became one of Montreal’s most reliable producers.

The first player selected in the 1978 Amateur Draft and Calder Trophy recipient with the North Stars the following season, Smith stepped into a leadership role after joining the Canadiens. As did fellow veterans Bob Gainey, Larry Robinson and Mario Tremblay, Smith helped guide youngsters Claude Lemieux, Stéphane Richer, Chris Chelios and Patrick Roy through their first postseason experience in the spring of 1986. The Jean Perron-coached squad confounded most experts, eliminating the Bruins, Whalers and Rangers in turn before snuffing the Flames in five.

Smith’s playoff statistics reflect his superb springtime performances. His 160 career postseason points are the same number both Gordie Howe and Mike Bossy recorded, placing him among the NHL’s all-time top 20.

After seven successful seasons in Montreal the 6-foot-4, 210-pound forward returned to Minnesota in 1990. He spent the next three seasons in America’s hockey hotbed, retiring from the North Stars after the 1992-93 season.
