Steve Smith back in NHL
CALGARY, Alberta - Defenseman Steve Smith scored one of the most memorable goals in Stanley Cup playoff history for the Calgary Flames as a member of the Edmonton Oilers. On Monday, Aug. 17, 1998 he unretired and will play for the Flames this season. Smith played 13 seasons in the NHL from 1984 to 1997 with the Oilers and Blackhawks and was a member of three Stanley Cup-winning teams in Edmonton. He had 71 goals and 283 assists along with 2,000 penalty minutes in 702 career games. But he is probably best known for inadvertently putting the puck into his own net in the third period of Game 7 of the 1986 Smythe Division finals, giving the Flames a 3-2 victory over the Oilers. He spent last year as an assistant coach with the Flames.
