Left-winger Bob Fillion played seven years with the Montreal Canadiens in the 1940s. He was a fine playmaker and checker whose solid work aided the Habs' drive to the Stanley Cup championship in 1944 and 1946.

Born in Thetford Mines, Quebec, he played junior with the Verdun Maple Leafs before joining the senior Shawinigan Cataracts for two years. In 1942-43, he played with the Montreal Army then made the Habs the next season. Fillion impressed with 30 points in 41 games the dressed for three post-season matches when Montreal won the Stanley Cup in 1944.

Injuries reduced Fillion to 31 games in 1944-45 but he returned to score three times in Montreal's semi-final loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. In 1945-46, he scored a personal high of ten goals then scored seven points while helping the Canadiens to their second Stanley Cup in three years. Fillion played a solid defensive role for the Habs over the four seasons. He often played on the same line as Ken Mosdell and Murph Chamberlain. Fillion retired after scoring 33 points in 44 games for the Sherbrooke Saints of the Quebec Senior League.
