Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bob Warner
Bob Warner turned professional with the Johnstown Jets of the International Hockey League following his Junior career with the Ottawa 67's, but after just one year as a pro, he decided to use his hockey skills to help him get an education. Warner headed to St. Mary's University where he joined their hockey team, the Huskies. In four years at St. Mary's the defenseman was an obvious leader, serving as the alternate captain his second year, and the team's captain for his third and fourth season. In three consecutive years he led the club to the National Championship and was also named a league All-Star on three occasions as well as a selection to the All-Canadian Team. When he finished his highly-successful collegiate career, Warner signed a free agent contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs in September of 1975. His first season in the organization was spent with their farm club in Oklahoma City but by the spring, Warner got the call from Toronto.

In the 1976 Playoffs, the Leafs summoned the young defenseman to join them for two games. The following year Warner found himself back in the minors, but the Leafs did give him 10 regular season games to show his stuff. In that stretch Warner managed a goal and an assist and come playoff time he was in their line up again, suiting up for two more contests.

The next three seasons were spent entirely in the minors with Warner playing for both the Dallas Black Hawks and the New Brunswick Hawks before deciding to give up on the game in 1980. After just one year away from the ice Warner made a comeback for the playoff drive in the New Brunswick Senior Hockey League. Warner joined the Cap Pele Capitals in the spring of 1982 and played 17 games for them while scoring six goals and 22 points.

In 1999 Bob Warner was selected to the St. Mary's University Sports Hall of Fame.
