Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bobby Rowe
Bobby Rowe was born in Heathcote, Ontario. After two years in the Ontario Hockey Association Junior "A" Hockey and one year in the Ontario Hockey Association Senior "A" Hockey League, Rowe signed as a free agent with the Renfrew Riversides of the Upper Ottawa Valley Hockey League in 1907.

The Heathcote, Ontario native played the majority of the 1906-07 season in Renfrew, while playing in one game with the Latchford Pros of the Temiskcaming Professional Hockey League. Rowe returned to Renfrew for the next two years, the second year the league was then known as the Federal Amateur Hockey League, while playing once again in one game in the TPHL for Haileybury.

In 1909, the National Hockey Association's Renfrew Millionaires signed Bobby Rowe as a free agent. Rowe spent two seasons with the Millionaires, before being claimed by Toronto of the NHA in the 1911 Dispersal Draft. Only two weeks after being claimed by Toronto, the Victoria Aristocrats of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association signed Rowe after he jumped contract with Toronto.

From 1911 to 1915, Rowe was a member of the Aristocrats before being traded to the PCHA's Seattle Metropolitans prior to the 1915-16 season. Rowe spent nine seasons with the Metropolitans, capturing PCHA First Team All-Star honours (1918, 1919, 1923) and PCHA Second Team All-Star honours (1917, 1920).

Bobby Rowe was a member of the Seattle team that competed in the 1919 Stanley Cup Challenge Series against Montreal that was cancelled due to the influenza epidemic and was a member of the 1920 team which fell short against Ottawa.

Following the 1923-24 season, Bobby Rowe was traded to the Boston Bruins where he played in his only four career NHL games. In those four games with the Bruins, Rowe managed to score his first and only NHL goal before the Western Hockey League's Portland Rosebuds signed him as free agent in January of 1926.

Bobby Rowe retired from hockey following the 1925-26 season.
