Bob Wall
Bob Wall
Defenseman
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 171
Shoots: Left
Born: Dec 1, 1942
Birthplace: Richmond Hill, ON, Canada
Despite playing as a hockey professional for 14 years, Wall really was known as an NHL journeyman, playing three full seasons and sporadically in several others. The vast majority of time was spent riding buses in the American Hockey League and the now defunct CPHL.

While playing junior hockey, Wall was part of the Memorial Cup winning Hamilton Red Wings of 1962. A team that boasted the likes of future NHL players such as Paul Henderson, Ron Harris, Lowell MacDonald, Bryan Campbell and Pit Martin and is considered to have been one of the greatest junior teams ever assembled.

The big opportunity for Wall came about in 1972-73 at the age of 30 when the newly formed World Hockey Association came into existence. Desperate to fill their rosters, the teams knew they needed some veteran players to help mold their squads. The Alberta Oilers took a chance on Wall, and he repaid them by having a career year offensively, potting 16 goals and 29 assists for 46 points in the 78-game regular season. Even Wall himself was shocked at the high calibre of his play. He was quoted that season as saying "there's no doubt, this is the best season I've ever had."

Wall played one more year in Edmonton before finishing out his pro career with the San Diego Mariners in 1975-76.
