Known as one of Ottawa's finest athletes, Alex Smith played most sports in his collegiate days but took on a hockey career that saw him become a member of the Ottawa Senators in 1924. He was an outstanding defenceman who helped that team claim the Stanley Cup in the 1926-27 season.
After being claimed by the Detroit Falcons in the 1931 Dispersal Draft, Smith was back in Ottawa one season later. He was traded to the Boston Bruins in 1933 and later wore the New York Americans sweater for his last year in the NHL, 1934-35.
Smith was not finished with hockey; though. He became a coach in Ottawa and guided the Ottawa Commandos to an Allan Cup championship in 1943. He was a curler for many years and was mourned greatly when he passed on in 1963.
