Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bob Trapp
Pembrooke, Ontario native Bob Trapp had three years of experience playing in Toronto, as well as a two year interruption to serve in the military behind when he settled in Edmonton for a six year stay in 1919. Trapp was twice named an All-Star, once to the First Team, while with Edmonton but his success couldn't keep him from getting traded in 1925. Trapp was sent to the Portland Rosebuds in a four-player trade that saw the legendary Eddie Shore head to Edmonton.

With Portland, Trapp was not only a First Team All-Star, but he also got his chance to join the NHL. Following his first season with the Rosebuds the Chicago Black Hawks bought the franchise and Bob Trapp was on his way to the Windy City.

In Chicago Trapp played 44 games and managed 4 goals and 2 assists, good for second on the team in scoring from the defense. He also provided toughness in spades, delivering 92 penalty minutes, just one minute off the team lead. Trapps star dimmed in his second season when he was unable to score and managed just 2 assists and 37 penalty minutes.

Trapp was out of the NHL the next fall, landing instead in Tulsa where he spent the bulk of the next four years playing. Midway through the 1931-32 season Trapp went from the Tulsa Oilers to the Providence Reds and it was with the Reds that he finished out his career, retiring in 1934.
