Rick Smith was doing an appearance at the retirement home that is attached to the building I work at. His mom was a resident there before she passed away a few years ago and Rick has been volunteering his time and donating money to the home for years. This was more of a discussion based appearance and just something for the residents to come out and chat with a former NHL player from Kingston.
Rick played for the Boston Bruins, California Golden Seals, St. Louis Blues, Washington Capitals and Detroit Red Wings in the NHL. He also played for the Minnesota Fighting Saints in the WHA. He won a Stanley Cup with the Bruins in 1970. He amassed 219 points in 687 NHL games as a rugged stay at home defenceman.
