Meet A Maverick: Hunter Smith #34

When Mavericks hockey fans watch this year's team, one player on the ice will stand above all the rest. That's because Mavericks newcomer Hunter Smith is 6 feet 7 inches tall to go along with weighing 231 pounds. The first-year Maverick spent the last two seasons playing in the AHL for the Stockton Heat. The 3rd year pro wishes to return to that level later this season. 

Smitty, as he is called by his new teammates, hails from Windsor, Ontario. His parents, grandparents and a girlfriend reside there still, and all root him on from home. Smith says his favorite pro sports team is the Detroit Tigers because they are the nearest MLB team to his home in Ontario.
