Robert David Smith (born February 12, 1958) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey forward who played for the Minnesota North Stars and Montreal Canadiens in the National Hockey League (NHL). Smith was born in North Sydney, Nova Scotia, but grew up in Ottawa, Ontario.

Playing career

As a junior playing for the Ottawa 67's in the Ontario Major Junior Hockey League (OMJHL) in the 1977–78 season, Smith set league records that still stand more than thirty years later for most assists (123) and most points (192) in a single season. The 20-year-old Smith beat out 17-year-old Wayne Gretzky (182 points) for that year's OMJHL scoring title, while also winning the Red Tilson Trophy as the OMJHL's most outstanding player and was voted the CHL Player of the Year for the entire Canadian Hockey League. He was drafted first overall in the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft by Minnesota.
