Todd William Simpson (born May 28, 1973) is a Canadian former ice hockey player who spent parts of 10 seasons in the National Hockey League. He is currently a real estate agent in Kelowna, British Columbia.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
In 1994, he was signed by the Calgary Flames, for whom he'd be a member of until 1999. For the 1999–2000 NHL season, Simpson moved to the Florida Panthers and was traded the following season to the Phoenix Coyotes.
Simpson played his first season overseas during the 2004–05 NHL lockout, winning the Danish league championship for Herning Blue Fox, with his teammate and younger brother Kent. He returned to the NHL to play with the Chicago Blackhawks and the Montreal Canadiens the following season.
During 2006–07 season, Simpson played for the Hannover Scorpions of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga in Germany. During the playoffs, he received a 12-game suspension for abuse of an official. The New York Islanders attempted to bring him back to the NHL for a playoff push. However, the NHL upheld his DEL suspension and Simpson would not play another professional game.
In 2011 Simpson was the 8th hockey player cast for the hit Canadian TV show "Battle of the Blades." He was partnered with United States Olympian Marcy Hinzmann.
