Directionless yet driven by a fervent desire to make something of himself, Doug ""The Thug"" Smith took his only marketable job skill--amateur boxing--and followed an unlikely career path to become a hockey enforcer, a.k.a. ""goon."" Entrusted with aggressively protecting his teammates from tough guys on the opposing team, he punched, elbowed and cross-checked his way up the ranks of minor league hockey to win a championship ring and the respect of his community. His entertaining underdog story is the subject of the cult-classic motion picture Goon (2011) and its sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017).
