Eddie Rodden was born March 22, 1901 in Mattawa, Ontario. After four years in the Northern Ontario Hockey Association, Rodden joined Woodstock of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior 'A' Hockey League before finishing his season with Woodstock's Ontario Intermediate Hockey Association's franchise.

From 1920 to 1923, Eddie Rodden spent time in the Ontario Hockey Association's Senior 'A' Hockey League where he was a Second Team OHA-Sr. All-Star with the Toronto Aura Lee's in 1922 and an Allan Cup winner with the Toronto Granites in 1923.

Rodden joined Eveleth of the United States Amateur Hockey Association (1923-25) and of the Central Hockey League (1924-25) where he spent three years with the franchise before signing as a free agent with the American Hockey Association's Minneapolis Millers.

Although he began the 1926-27 season with Minneapolis, Rodden played in only 19 games before being traded to the Chicago Black Hawks. His 1927-28 season began in Chicago but he was later traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs to complete a three team transaction with Pittsburgh Penguins.

Rodden played in a career high 25 games with the Maple Leafs in 1927-28, scoring three goals and adding six assists for nine points before being traded to the Boston Bruins during the off-season. Even though he spent the majority of the season with the Bruins, Rodden was loaned to the Canadian Professional Hockey League's Windsor Bulldogs midway through the 1928-29, playing in 19 games.

In 1929-30, Rodden joined the London Panthers of the International Hockey League where he was second in team scoring with 43 points. Traded once again during the off-season, the New York Rangers acquired Rodden from the Panthers before he was dealt to back to the IHL and the Pittsburgh Yellowjackets midway through the 1930-31 season.

After he returning to Pittsburgh in 1931-32, Rodden joined the Canadian-American Hockey League's Quebec Beavers, where he played in only eleven games before he returned to the Windsor Bulldogs, now of the IHL.

Eddie Rodden retired from the game of hockey following the 1933-34 AHA season as a member of the Tulsa Oilers.

Throughout his career, Eddie Rodden played in 99 career NHL games, scoring six goals and adding 15 assists for 21 career points.
