D.J.Smith

Drafted by the New York Islanders in the 2nd round (41st overall) of the  1995 NHL Entry Draft  but traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs before he completed his junior career with his hometown Windsor, Ontario Spitfires.  D.J. Smith made his National Hockey League debut during the 1996-97 season and
 played the bulk of that campaign in Junior but suited up for the Maple Leafs for seven games. Smith contributed one assist while with the big club and was named to the Ontario Hockey League’s Second All-Star Team that year as well.
Smith spent the next two seasons in the American Hockey League with the St. John’s Maple Leafs honing his game and returned to the NHL during the 1999-00 campaign. Smith suited up for three more matches with Toronto but was unable to register a point.
Smith returned to St. John’s for the rest of that year and all of the next two. Now associate coach with the Windsor Spitfires.

Received this blue sharpie auto IP during the Leafs training camp in Hamilton at the turn of the century. ( blue sharpie not a good choice)
