Jordan LaVallée Smotherman (born May 11, 1986 in Corvallis, Oregon) is an American hockey player under contract to the Columbus Blue Jackets in the National Hockey League (NHL). Has played the past two seasons in the American Hockey League (AHL) with the Chicago Wolves. He was drafted by the Atlanta Thrashers in the 4th round, 116th overall, of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

His first National Hockey League goal was scored in his second game with the Thrashers in a 2-point effort against Craig Anderson of the Florida Panthers.

Smotherman was born in Corvallis, Oregon and moved to Binghamton, New York at the age of 2 before his family settled in Westborough, Massachusetts at the age of 10. Upon joining the Quebec Remparts, he went by the name Jordan LaVallée in order to connect with the Quebec fanbase, as his mother Maureen was French Canadian. He was a member of the 2006 Memorial Cup champion Quebec Remparts, as one of six New Englanders who played on the Remparts roster.

On October 8, 2009 the Thrashers traded him to the Blue Jackets in return for future considerations.
