Ted George Hampson (born December 11, 1936 in Togo, Saskatchewan) was a National Hockey League centre during the 1960s and 70s.


Ted Hampson was awarded the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy in 1969 while playing for the Oakland Seals. He retired from the NHL following the 1971–72 season, and went on to play five seasons in the WHA. The WHA would award him the Paul Deneau Trophy (Most Gentlemanly Player) in 1973 as a member of the Minnesota Fighting Saints. Hampson recorded 108 goals, 245 assists, 353 points, and a mere 94 penalty minutes in 676 NHL games. In 305 WHA appearances Hampson tallied 60 goals, 143 assists, 203 points, and 51 penalty minutes.

Hampson was the general manager and player-coach for the Oklahoma City Stars of the Central Hockey League from 1978 to 1981; at the age of 45 in his final stint, one of the oldest men ever to play professional hockey. He is currently employed by the Colorado Avalanche as chief scout.
