Gordon Tottle is an American retired ice hockey defenseman, who played 456 games in the American Hockey League with the Springfield Indians. In his career, he played 18 seasons of professional ice hockey, and was named a first-team all-star in both the American Hockey League, and the Eastern Hockey League.

Playing career

Tottle was born in Detroit, Michigan, and began his professional hockey career with the Dallas Texans, and the Fort Worth Rangers, in the United States Hockey League.[1] He signed with the Springfield Indians, and wore uniform #5 for ten seasons.[2][3] During the three seasons which the Indians played as the Syracuse Warriors, he led the team with 187 penalty minutes.[3] He was named a first-team all-star in the 1954–55 AHL season, scoring six goals, and 31 points, his highest totals in the AHL.[2][4] After his ten seasons with the Indians/Warriors, he had played the eighth most games (433), in Springfield AHL history, and was inducted into Springfield Hockey Hall of Fame.[2]

Tottle then played one season in the Western Hockey League, followed by four seasons with Charlotte in the Eastern Hockey League. In his first two seasons with the Charlotte Clippers, he was named a first-team all-star in 1958–59, and 1959–60.[5][6] In his third season in Charlotte, the team was renamed to the Charlotte Checkers, and Tottle was named its player-coach.[6] He led the team to 25 wins in 64 games, but missed the playoffs.[7] After his fourth season in Charlotte, he returned to his home state of Michigan, to play a final season with the Port Huron Flags in the International Hockey League.
