Zdeněk Šmíd (born February 3, 1980 in Plzen) is a Czech retired professional ice hockey goaltender. He played mostly in his home country, with appearances in both the top and second-level Czech hockey leagues. Šmíd also appeared in both the Finnish SM-liiga - 18 games with HPK - and the Swedish Hockey League - one game with Luleå HF - during the 2001–02 season. He was the starting goalie for the Czech team that won the 2000 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.
He retired at the early age of 26 following long struggles with injury, and has ever since started working on his father's construction company.
