Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ted Saunders
Right-winger Ted Saunders played 18 games for the Ottawa Senators in 1933-34. He was a consistent goal scorer who excelled in the minors and senior leagues.

The Ottawa native played with the senior New Edinburghs in his hometown then moved on to the Iroquois Eskimos of the NOHA. During the early 30s he was a top scorer in the Can-Am League and found the back of the net a league high 29 times for the Boston Cubs in 1932-33. The next year he split his playing time between the NHL and the minors after a trade brought him to Ottawa.

Saunders returned to the Can-Am league and led all goal scorers again with the Philadelphia Arrows in 1934-35. The next year he earned a place on the Can-Am second all-star team. Saunders later scored well in the AHL and AHA before switching to senior hockey. In 1942 he led the Quebec senior league with 31 goals in 40 games and retired in 1944 after topping the Nova Scotia loop with 17 goals in 10 contests for the Truro Bearcats.
