Episode 083: A Heart Made for War (Part III)

Doug Smith has just been released from a potential spot with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. He returns home to Boston with the ever-present question, "What now?" on his mind. Well, much like a cat with nine lives, Doug's hockey dream just can't be laid to rest.

Doug's old friend, Commander, comes calling once again with an offer to join a team in need of a tough guy. Without a moment's hesitation, Doug agrees, and he's off to Canada to play for the Miramichi Packers.

After his season with the Packers, Doug bounces around, landing where ever someone needs a set a knuckles. All things, good and bad, must come to an end; and so, too, must Doug's hockey career. However, just because one thing ends, doesn't mean something even better isn't right around the corner.

Follow along as we close out our story on Doug "The Thug" Smith. We cover his final playing days, his memoir, and even a couple of Hollywood movies you may have seen.
