Hampson, Ted
Oakland Seals

After a highly successful junior career with the Flin Flon Bombers, including a Memorial Cup victory in 1957, TED HAMPSON was signed by the New York Rangers. Before ever playing a game in New York, HAMPSON was claimed on waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs. After a single season (1959-60) in Toronto, HAMPSON was picked up by the Rangers once again in the intra-league draft. Three seasons with the Rangers, HAMPSON was then claimed by Detroit in the draft. Ted saw only limited action in Detroit, and was traded to the Oakland Seals partway through the 1967-68 season. While with the Seals, TED HAMPSON was awarded the MASTERTON TROPHY in 1968-69, a season in which he enjoyed his finest offensive statistics -- 26 goals and 49 assists for 75 points. HAMPSON remained with the Seals until 1971, when he was traded to the Minnesota North Stars. When the New York Islanders claimed him in the 1972 expansion draft, TED decided to stay in Minnesota and joined the Fighting Saints of the World Hockey Association. After the 1975-76 season, HAMPSON retired from professional hockey, having played 676 NHL games in which he scored 108 goals and 245 assists for 353 points. In the WHA, TED added another 60 goals and 144 assists for 204 points in 304 games played. Upon retiring, HAMPSON worked in the hockey equipment manufacturing industry, while coaching junior in Bloomington Minnesota. After moving to Oklahoma City to coach (and occasionally play), TED HAMPSON became a scout -- first with Minnesota, later with the NHL's Central Scouting, and after that, with the St. Louis Blues.
