Lukáš Smítal (born 15 August 1974) is a Czech ice hockey right winger who currently plays for the Guildford Flames in the English Premier Ice Hockey League. Smítal signed a one year deal with the Guildford Flames on June 23, 2010[1]


Smítal played for the Czech Republic U-20 (under 20 years old) team in 1994[2], where he scored two points in six games[3].


Smítal spent most of his career (1996-99, 2000-04) in North America playing in the ECHL and the AHL. Smítal holds the record for most goals scored as a member of the former Johnstown Chiefs. Smítal scored 107 goals over two different stints with the Chiefs (1996-99, 2001-03). Smital broke the record formerly held by Bruce Coles, who had scored 106 goals during his time with the Chiefs.

Smital was signed and brought to the UK by the Bracknell Bees hockey team, where he made a formidable partnership with Martin Masa, helping to bring silverware to Bracknell. Smital stayed for 3 seasons before leaving for local rivals Guildford.

Smítal re-signed with the Guildford Flames on June 23, 2010, which would make for his fourth consecutive year with the club.

Smítal is also the current head coach of the Bracknell Hornets of the ENIHL and is a camp coach at Black And Gold Conditioning Camp, located in Bracknell[4].


Fellow countryman and current teammate Martin Máša has skated on six different teams with Smítal: 1996-99 Johnstown Chiefs; 1997-98 Saint John Flames; 2000-01 Greensboro Generals; 2003-04 Texas Wildcatters; 2004-05 Bracknell Bees; 2009-present Guildford Flames.
