Steve Smith (born April 4, 1963) is a Canadian retired professional ice hockey player who played for the Philadelphia Flyers and Buffalo Sabres in 18 National Hockey League (NHL) games.

Playing career[edit]

Smith was drafted 16th overall in the 1st round of 1981 NHL Entry Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers, from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

Despite being drafted in the first round and being regarded as a highly rated prospect, Smith was unable to parlay his talent into an NHL career. As such, he will always be regarded as an NHL draft bust. He played most of his professional career in the minors but did play parts of 5 seasons in the NHL. He played for the Flyers (1984–85 to 1986–87) and the Buffalo Sabres (1988–89). During those 4 seasons, he played 18 games managing no goals and one assist for one point and 15 penalty minutes.
