Biography

Thomas Edward HIBBERD

Ice hockey forward Ted Hibberd's early career fluctuated between teams in Ottawa's junior and senior hockey leagues from 1942 through nearly his entire career. Up until 1948 he played with the Ottawa New Edinburghs (junior and senior), St. Pats (junior), Montagnards (junior and senior), Navy Bluejackets (Ottawa National Defense Hockey League), Hull Volants (junior) and the Ottawa Senators (senior). It was as a player with the Burghs, however, that he was recruited to join the RCAF Flyers, Canada's delegation to the 1948 Winter Olympic ice hockey tournament. Hibberd, a civilian at the time, was quickly instated as an aircraftsman and sent to Switzerland, where he played in eight games, scored three goals (all of them in the 21-1 match against Italy), and took home a gold medal. He spent the next three seasons with the Flyers until retiring from active play in 1951. As a member of his gold medal-winning Olympic team, he was inducted into the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame in 2008. He spent his entire business career with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.
