BIOGRAPHY
Signed by the Rangers organization at the age of 18, Clint Smith matured into a top prospect during four seasons with the Vancouver Lions of the NWHL. He led that leage in scoring in both 1935 and 1936 before being brought to the Blueshirts` top minor league affiliate, the Philadelphia Ramblers for the 1936-37 season.

After a strong year in Philadelphia, Smith became a Rangers regular in 1937 and went on to play six straight seasons with the team, including the 1939-40 season, when he captured his only Stanley Cup title. Between 1937 and 1939, Smith achieved the remarkable distinction of playing 85 consecutive games without being called for a single penalty.

A two-time Lady Byng Trophy winner, Smith solidified his Hall of Fame credentials during a four-year stint with Chicago following his last season as a Ranger. In 1943-44, he led the entire league with 49 assists, and in his first year after leaving the NHL, he was named USHL MVP as the player-coach of the Tulsa Oilers and later became a player-coach with the Rangers` USHL affiliate in St. Paul, Minn.
