Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bob Liddington
Left-winger Bob Liddington played 11 games for the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1970-71. Although his impact in the NHL was minimal, he enjoyed a fine career in the WHA and the minors.

Born in Calgary, Alberta, Liddington was signed as a free agent by the Maple Leafs after he led the WCJHL with 58 goals with the hometown Centennials. He spent most of his first two pro seasons with the CHL's Tulsa Oilers and registered an assist during his recall to Toronto. After scoring 22 goals for the Phoenix Roadrunners of the WHL in 1971-72, the young forward opted to try his luck in the newly formed WHA.

Liddington recorded three straight 20-goal seasons with the Chicago Cougars then spent two years bouncing between four different clubs. He retired in 1979 after scoring 34 goals for the Phoenix Roadrunners of the PHL.
