Bob Bailey
Bob Bailey
Right Wing
Number: 21
Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 180
Shoots: Right
Born: May 29, 1931
Birthplace: Kenora, ON, Canada
Acquired: Traded to Detroit by Chicago with Jack McIntyre, Nick Mickoski and Hec Lalande for Earl Reibel, Billy Dea, Lorne Ferguson and Bill Dineen on December 17, 1957.
Bashin (Bob) Bailey was traded for Bill Dineen three times, once in 1951 with his brother John and again in 1957 and 1959. Bailey played for 19 teams in his professional career and was included in trades involving over 20 players.

Bob was not a boy scout, as his nickname would attest, and his suspensions for various altercations made more news than his short appearances in the NHL. In 1955 he was suspended by the AHL for punching a referee during a Calder Cup playoff game between his Pittsburgh team and Buffalo. He was fined $575 and was banned from the remainder of the playoffs.

His NHL tour of duty included Toronto, Detroit, and Chicago, never for a full season, between 1953 and 1958. Although he proved a decent scorer elsewhere, he managed just a few goals in the Original Six, and spent most of his years in the minors waiting to be called up as a fill-in or replacement for an injured regular.

Incredibly, after almost 19 years of tough, grinding hockey, Bailey had his best offensive season when he was 34, scoring 132 points for the Dayton Gems in the IHL in 1965-66.
