Doug Smith was born December 27, 1964 and is a retired minor-league ice hockey player who co-authored a biography about his time spent playing professional hockey, Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey, with Adam Frattasio. The book was later made into a film starring Seann William Scott in the role based on Smith. A sequel to the popular independent comedy is currently in the early stages. Smith's role on the teams he played for was that of the enforcer, which led the Hanover, Massachusetts native to average 6.73 penalty minutes per game over his 60-game career. Smith's athletic career started with boxing which culminated in a split-decision loss in the Massachusetts heavyweight Golden Gloves final in 1984. While training at the Hanover Police Boys' Club, his friend, Adam Frattasio, encouraged him to try hockey fighting. He first laced up skates at the age of 19, played in amateur leagues at 21, and made his first minor-league hockey team at 24 when he won a championship with the Carolina Thunderbirds of the first-year East Coast Hockey League during the 1988-89 season. Smith went on to play for six other teams in three leagues, his most productive tour being with the Miramichi Gagnon Packers of the New Brunswick Senior Hockey League. Smith received additional invitations to continue playing in the States, particularly to finish out seasons for teams in various lower minor-leagues, but his new job as a police officer in Massachusetts limited his opportunities to participate in sporadic games with the intention of fighting the opponent's toughest player(s). After retiring from hockey, Smith has worked as a coach within the Boston Bruins organization, showing their players how to defend themselves. He enjoyed a 20-year stint as an assistant coach for the three-time state-champion Hanover High School hockey team, and has logged significant time as an on-ice official, including two years patrolling the ice in the professional Federal Hockey League. He continues to work as an on-ice hockey-fight trainer, working with such NHL heavyweights as Steve MacIntyre and John Scott. Additionally, Smith is a police officer, currently with the Hanson police department since 1999. Smith is married and helps care for his two young dauthers with his wife, Sharon.
