Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bob Wilkie
Defenceman Bob Wilkie played briefly with the Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers in the 90s. He was a fine playmaker who could also play an abrasive style in his own zone.

The native of Calgary, Alberta played junior in his hometown with the AJHL's Buffalos before moving up to the Wranglers of the WHL. Wilkie then spent three years with the Swift Current Broncos and accumulated 192 assists in his junior career. Chosen 41st overall by Detroit in 1987, the crafty blueliner totaled 38 points as a rookie pro with the AHL's Adirondack Red Wings in 1989-90.

Wilkie played eight NHL games for Detroit in 1990-91 then battled injuries the next season. In February 1993 he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers who sought defensive insurance. Wilkie notched four points in ten games for his new club but was chiefly used by the Hershey Bears of the AHL. During the mid-90s he played with the Augsburg Panthers of Germany, sat out a year and was a West Coast League all-star in 1998 as a member of the Fresno Fighting Falcons.
