He played junior hockey with the St. Catharines Black Hawks in 1963-64. After that he continued to play in the Chicago Blackhawks system, winning the James Norris Memorial Trophy in the International Hockey League in 1965-66. With Glenn Hall and Denis Dejordy playing for Chicago, the odds were heavily against Sneddon making it to the NHL.
The Blackhawks traded him to the Philadelphia Flyers in 1968 for Brian Bradley. However the Flyers were deep in goalies as well (Bernie Parent and Doug Favell) so Sneddon still played in the minors. Even being claimed by the Los Angeles Kings in 1969 did not produce the NHL chance for Sneddon.
After that he played seven years of minor pro and three years of senior hockey. He retired in 1980.
