  • Who Doug Smith is

    NHL Player, Author, Speaker

    Doug Smith

    Doug Smith grew up in Canada's capital city on the south shore of the Ottawa River. At 16 Doug was drafted by the Ottawa 67s from the Nepean Raiders into the OHL.


    At 17 Doug was awarded the Ontario Hockey League's top award for Academic Achievement and at 18 years 2 weeks old, Doug was drafted 2nd pick overall into the National Hockey League. Doug would play his first year for the Los Angeles Kings as their youngest player ever.


    In professional hockey game #607, at age 29, Doug went full speed, head first into the end boards & shattering the 5th and 6th cervical vertebrae in his neck. He would later wake up in ICU, a quadriplegic. No arms, no legs, no bladder, no bowels.


    Today, Doug's literary work and seminar series presents and teaches an approach to emotional trauma that any individual, team or organization can use to protect, build and maintain extremely high levels of human performance.
