Defenseman Art Smith played parts of three years with the Toronto Canoe Club before he joined the Toronto Maple Leafs during the 1927-28 campaign.

Smith, who born in Toronto, Ontario on November 29th, 1906 suited up for his hometown Maple Leafs for 15 games and scored five goals and eight points. Smith became an NHL regular the following year when he played 43 games and produced five goals. After his third season with Toronto he was part of one of the biggest trades in Toronto Maple Leaf history. Smith, along with Eric Pettinger and the then whopping sum of $35,000 were traded to the Ottawa Senators for star defenseman "King" Clancy.

Smith played just one season with Ottawa playing 43 games and producing six points. It was his final year in the National Hockey League.

In 1931-32, Smith played just 1 game with the Boston Cubs of the Canadian-American League before moving on to the Chicago Shamrocks for the rest of the season. Art Smith retired from the game at year's end.
