Bob's career was pretty much the spitting image of older brother, Bill. Bob played his amateur hockey in his hometown of Edmonton and split the 1939-40 season between Chicago and Providence. With the Hawks, he had the fortune to play with Bill until the end of 1942. Bill went to the army, and Bob played one more year wit the Hawks before himself enlisting after his best statistical season (ten goals and 32 points).
Unlike Bill, however, Bob made it back to the NHL after the war. Five years younger, he still had time to play in the minors and ork his way back, which he did, with the Canadiens in 1947-48. The stint lasted just 22 games, though, and Bob played the final two and a half years of pro with Cleveland in the AHL before retiring in 1950, the same year his brother hung up the blades.
