Ted Garvin (August 20, 1923 – November 18, 1992) was a Canadian forward and coach primarily in the International Hockey League. Born in Sarnia, Ontario, he began his playing career in the Eastern Hockey League with the Philadelphia Falcons (1943–44) and Washington Lions (1945–46) and played two seasons with the Sarnia Sailors of the International Hockey League (1949–50 – 1950–51). Garvin led the IHL in goals in the 1949–50 season, scoring 42 with the first-place Sailors. He also finished second in total points that season.
Garvin began his coaching career by returning to the International Hockey League, where he served as head coach of the Port Huron Flags/Port Huron Wings for four seasons (1968–69 – 1971–72). Garvin was hired to coach the Detroit Red Wings in the National Hockey League for the 1973–74 season, but was fired after his first eleven games in which the team went 2–8–1. He again returned to the IHL as head coach of the Toledo Goaldiggers (1974–75 – 1978–79) and the team advanced to the finals three times and won two Turner Cups in 1974–75 and 1977–78. Garvin also served as head coach of the Muskegon Mohawks in the IHL in 1980–81, the Flint Generals in 1981-82 and returned to the Toledo Goaldiggers in December of 1984 as a replacement for coach Tony Piroski.
