Smith served as captain of Leafs
TORONTO -- Sid Smith, a former Toronto Maple Leafs captain and three-time Stanley Cup winner, died after a long illness. He was 78.
Smith played parts of 12 seasons in Toronto between 1946-58. He won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy as the NHL's most gentlemanly player in 1951-52 and again in 1954-55 when he was an all-star. He was captain of the Leafs in 1955-56.
"He was a great Leaf -- great enough to be captain," current Toronto coach Pat Quinn said. "He'll be sadly missed by the fraternity."
