Right-winger Ted Snell played with three different NHL clubs over a two-year period in the mid-70s. He was a decent playmaker who worked tireless in the corners and took pride in his defensive responsibilities.

The Ottawa native totaled 77 goals in four seasons with the OHA's Niagara Falls Flyers before turning pro with the Hershey Bears of the AHL. Apart from a 54-game stint with the WHL's Phoenix Roadrunners in 1968-69, Snell was a regular in Hershey through the 1972-73 season. In 1969 he was an integral part of the Bears' Calder Cup championship.

In 1973-74 the experienced minor leaguer played 55 games as a 27-year-old rookie with the Pittsburgh Penguins. In June, 1974 he was claimed by the Kansas City Scouts in the NHL Expansion Draft. He was a solid role player for the first year club until he was traded to the Detroit Red Wings two months into the 1974-75 season. The next year Snell returned to the AHL until his retirement in 1976.
