Biography

Ice hockey forward Ted Hargreaves spent three seasons with the Foam Lake Flyers of the Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey Association-Intermediate from 1958 through 1961 prior to joining the Melville Millionaires of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. He stayed with the team until 1964, playing several playoff games with the Estevan Bruins in 1963, and won an award as the league’s most gentlemanly player in 1964. After a season with Brigham Young University, he joined the Canadian national team in 1965 and played at his first international tournament in 1967, winning a bronze medal at that year’s World Championships. He represented Canada at the 1968 Winter Olympics, playing in seven games, scoring one goal, and helping his team take home a bronze medal. After coming home empty-handed at the 1969 World Championships, he joined the Tulsa Oilers of the Central Professional Hockey League, in addition to playing five playoff games with the Western Hockey League’s Seattle Totems. He stuck with the Oilers for the 1970-1971 season, but missed many games due to a broken ankle. In 1971 he signed as a player/coach for the Nelson Maple Leafs of the Western International Hockey League and was suspended one game for continuing a fight during a match. He stayed with the Maple Leafs until 1973, but played fourteen playoff games with the Spokane Jets in 1972 when they won that year’s Allan Cup, given annually to the senior men’s ice hockey champions in Canada (despite the fact that the Jets were American). After spending 1973-1974 with the Winnipeg Jets, then of the World Hockey Association, he rejoined the Maple Leafs in 1974 as alternate captain and skated with them until hanging up his skates in 1977.

After retiring from active play, Hargreaves was a hockey coach and school teacher in Nelson, British Columbia until his 2005 death, one day shy of his 62nd birthday. Earlier that year he had been given the Gordon Juckes Award for his efforts in the development of amateur hockey at the national level. He was also an artist who illustrated instruction manuals for Hockey Canada. Since 2006, B.C. Hockey has given out the Ted Hargreaves Scholarship to young ice hockey players who also excel academically.
