Bob McCord was a steady defenseman who looked after matters in his own end while moving the puck up ice effectively. He played over 300 NHL games in the 1960s and '70s and was a success in the minors with a number of teams.

The native of the Matheson, Ontario, played Junior B with the Porcupine Combines and the Kitchener Greenshirts. He was a fine playmaker with the Montreal Junior Canadiens but never got chance to wear the uniform of the parent club. McCord spent the next nine years with the AHL's Springfield Indians and the Trois Rivieres Lions of the Quebec League. He was considered one of the best stay-at-home defenceman in the minors and was named to the QHL second all-star team in 1959 and placed on the AHL first all-star team twice and second all-star squad three times.

The veteran minor leaguer finally received a chance to make it in the NHL with the Boston Bruins in 1963-64. He was a regular for two years and was acquired by the Detroit Red Wings to fill in for injured players and stabilize the blueline on the AHL's Pittsburgh Hornets. In 1967 he was presented the Eddie Shore Award as the league's top defenseman.

Early in the 1967-68 season, McCord was given a second chance at full time NHL work when he was picked up by the expansion Minnesota North Stars. He was a stable influence on the club and helped them reach the semi-finals in 1968. After three years in the Western League, McCord joined the St. Louis Blues for 43 games in 1972-73 then returned to the minors. He retired in 1975 after playing a year with the CHL's Denver Spurs.
