Bob Taylor

Right Winger Bob Taylor's NHL career is long forgotten. He played just eight games with the Boston Bruins way back in the 1929-30 season, scoring no points.

But by playing for the Bruins, Taylor became one of the earliest Massachusetts born and raised hockey players to play for the Bruins.  Taylor was from Brookline, MA, where he was a high school hockey star.

Aside from his short stint with the Bruins Taylor had a good minor league career with the Boston Tigers and Providence Reds, retiring in 1936.

Taylor returned to Brookline after his playing days. He operated his own painting business while serving as the fire commissioner.
