Carl "Winky" Smith was born in the town of Cache Bay, Ontario on September 18th 1917. The diminutive winger played four years of Senior hockey then four more of minor-pro before getting his shot with the Detroit Red Wings during the 1943-44 season.

Smith got into seven games for the Wings and contributed a goal and an assist. The bulk of his season, however, was spent back in the American Hockey League, where he spent the next campaign as well.

Smith joined the United States Hockey League a few games into the 1945-46 season and was an instant success. After posting 29 goals and 67 points in 54 games he was named to the USHL First All-Star Team.

Smith spent three more years in the USHL with the Omaha Knights before retiring as a player in 1949.
