Smith was drafted 16th overall in the 1st round of 1981 NHL Entry Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers, from the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. He played his first eight NHL games in November 1981, which was ultimately the most games he played in any of his five NHL seasons. 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 and played most of his professional career in the minors. After winning the Calder Cup as a member of the Hershey Bears in 1987–88, Smith left the Flyers organization in the off-season and signed with the Calgary Flames. Before playing any games with his new team he was claimed by the Buffalo Sabres in the NHL Waiver Draft and saw his last NHL action early in the 1988–89 season.
