Ted Hampson
Ted Hampson
Center
Number: 16
Height: 5' 8"
Weight: 173
Shoots:
Born: Dec 11, 1936
Birthplace: Togo, SK, Canada
Hometown: Flin Flon, Manitoba
Acquired: Claimed by Detroit from New York Rangers in intra-league draft on June 4, 1963.
Center Ted Hampson got his first taste of major junior A hockey playing two games for the Flin Flon Bombers in the 1954 Memorial Cup playoffs. He spent four full seasons with the Bombers and was a member of two other Memorial Cup participants in 1956 and 1957.

The New York Rangers were in possession of Hampson's NHL playing rights, when the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired those rights after he was placed on waivers in 1959. In 1959-60, Hampson dressed for 41 games with the Leafs, scoring two goals and ten points. In the summer of 1960, the Rangers had obviously felt they made a mistake in releasing Hampson, and re-acquired him from Toronto in the Intra League Draft. After three years in a defensive checking role with the Rangers, he was taken by Detroit in the 1963 intra-league draft by Detroit.

Hampson also made NHL stops in Oakland and Minnesota before trying his hand in the WHA, joining the Michigan-Baltimore Stags in 1972-73. He also played three years for the Minnesota Fighting Saints and one year with the Quebec Nordiques. What he lacked in size, he more than made up for with quickness and agility on the ice, making him the perfect hound for checking other teams top offensive threats.

Hampson wound down his career in the CHL with Oklahoma City, retiring after appearing in six games in 1980-81. Known throughout his entire career for his defensive capabilities, the one season that stood out from an offensive point of view was in 1968-69 when he set career highs with 26 goals, 49 assists and 75 points while skating for the Oakland Seals.
