Stanley "Smokey[1][2]" Otis Reddick (born December 6, 1969) is a former Canadian ice hockey goaltender.

Career[edit]

Nicknamed "Smokey" by his fans and teammates, Reddick spent his twelve-year career in the ECHL and in Europe. While in Europe, Reddick played in the Slovenian League and the Alpine League.

As a member of the Johnstown Chiefs in 1991-92, Reddick set a franchise record for single season wins (25). This record would stand unmatched for ten years when Frederic Deschênes matched Reddick's record[2] in 2001-02. His record would later be broken by Chiefs goaltender Ryan Nie,[1] who finished the 2007-08 ECHL season with 29 wins.

After retiring from professional hockey in 2002, Reddick played with the le des Chenes North Stars of the Hanover Tache Hockey League, located in Manitoba. As a member of the North Stars, Reddick led the North Stars to several early victories in the Allan Cup tournament.[3]

International Play[edit]

Reddick was named to the Slovenian World Cup team on three separate occasions: 1997, 2001, and 2002.

Personal[edit]

Stan Reddick is the younger brother of former NHL goaltender Eldon "Pokey" Reddick.[4] His nephew, Bryce Reddick, is a forward at Michigan Tech[5]
