John (Joey) Todd

Possessor of a booming shot and extraordinary skill at face-offs, Joey Todd was consistently among league scoring leaders in junior, senior and professional lacrosse.

Born in Peterborough into a family with a long history of lacrosse, Joe was on several city teams that won Ontario Minor Lacrosse championships before graduating to star on the 1961 Hastings junior team that captured the Minto Cup. The slim sharpshooter was a leading scorer on the 1967 Canadian Field Lacrosse Team in the world championship tournament and on Peterborough’s senior team that won the Mann Cup championship in 1966. In 1969, when the Peterborough Lakers won the Canadian professional lacrosse championship in a tough seven-game final, Joe was the leading scorer with 14 goals and 10 assists and was named Most Valuable Player.

“When he is at his best, there is no player better.” said Lakers’ coach Bobby Allan in summing up Joe’s play in that series.

Joe’s lacrosse career included one year with the Maryland Arrows of the professional National Lacrosse League.

Inducted into the Ontario Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1997, Joe chalked up 234 goals and 248 assists in 192 games with Peterborough senior lacrosse teams, including 10 goals in one league game in 1965.
