Harry Smith, Team Canada
 
Harry Smith was named an all-star three years in a row (1961-1963) in World Championships (source). Does anyone know who this guy was/is? Is he still alive? He was never a top 5 scorer as far as I know. And never named as the best defenseman of the tournament. But he participated in three tournaments (source) and was named an all-star every time.

I guess this is the guy. But that's incomplete.

Any info would be appreciated.

Harry is a great guy, I just fixed his computer and dropped it off at his house. He has a house here in Hawaii.
