After playing for the AHL minor league Rochester Americans in the early 1960s, Pappin played in 767 career NHL games between 1963 and 1977, scoring 278 goals and 295 assists for 573 points. His best season statistically was the 1972–73 season, when he scored 41 goals and 92 points; both career highs. Pappin was the midseason replacement head coach of the IHL's Milwaukee Admirals for the 1984–85 season, with a team record of 12 wins and 14 losses. After retiring from hockey, he has been the Director of U.S. Scouting for the Chicago Blackhawks.

In 2007, Pappin was in the news when his lost 1967 Stanley Cup ring was remarkably found by Florida treasure hunter Mark DesErmia in the Gulf of Mexico.[1] Pappin eventually struck a deal with the treasure hunter and the ring was returned for a reward.[2]

He is currently a scout for the Anaheim Ducks.[3]
