Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bob Mongrain
Centre Bob Mongrain was an offensive specialist who played parts of six seasons in the NHL during the 1970s and '80s. Most of his success came in the more wide-open junior and European leagues.

Born in La Sarre, Quebec, Mongrain was signed as a free agent by the Buffalo Sabres after scoring 66 goals for the QMJHL's Trois Rivieres Draveurs. During his five years in the Sabres' organization, the slick pivot made a few appearances in the NHL but was chiefly an offensive spark on the AHL's Rochester Americans. In 1983, his creative work helped the Americans win the Calder Cup.

Mongrain joined EC Kloten of Switzerland in 1984-85 and led the league with 46 goals in 38 games the next season. He returned to the NHL for eleven games with the L.A. Kings in 1985-86. Mongrain returned to Switzerland and played five more years before retiring in 1991.
