As a young man, Ed Sanford had an instinctive feeling that, in spite of the honour of being scouting by the pros, his education was important. So he attended St. Michael's College to complete his high school degree as a foundation for future learning and, in the process, proceeded to scorch a path through the OHA, scoring 91 points in 36 games.

Sanford's formal education, however, was put on permanent hold in the wake of the Boston Bruins desire to integrate the young sniper into their line-up. But once there, he found that, at age 19, it was very difficult to keep up with the more physically mature and experienced players such as Richard, Lach, and the Bentleys. He'd have preferred more seasoning at university first. But nonetheless, he stuck it out and evolved into a steady performer who was good for about 30 points per season.

His most striking performance came during the playoffs of 1953. The Bruins made it to the Stanley Cup finals and although they were ousted four games to one by the Canadiens, Sanford contributed eight goals and three assists to the losing cause.

He remained with the Bruins until 1955, when he was traded to Detroit and then flipped to Chicago for Metro Prystai. Sanford completed the season and then retired.
