Doug Smail (born 2 September, 1957 in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada) is a retired professional ice hockey left winger who played in the NHL for 13 seasons between 1980 and 1993.

Playing careerEdit

Doug Smail starred at the University of North Dakota for three seasons from 1977 to 1980, scoring 87 points in 40 games in his final season in the WCHA. His performance was enough to warrant notice from the Winnipeg Jets, and the next season he was a full-time NHL player.

Smail played 11 seasons with Winnipeg, being a top two-way player for them. In fact, Doug Smail had a streak of 12 consecutive seasons where he scored at least one shorthanded goal, and scored a total of 28 shorthanded goals in his career.

Perhaps Smail's greatest claim to fame was when he set the NHL record for fastest goal after the opening faceoff by scoring a goal five seconds after the game started on 20 December, 1981. Smail finished his career with the Minnesota North Stars, Quebec Nordiques and Ottawa Senators, but never achieved the success he had in Winnipeg.

After Smail's NHL career was over, he played 3 seasons in Britain before retiring. He now resides in Colorado with his wife and 3 children. Smail now coaches the AAA Colorado Outlaws hockey team.
