Robert Harry "Bob" Hassard (born March 16, 1929 in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan) was an NHL centre in the 1950s.

Playing career

Bob Hassard played junior hockey with the Toronto Marlboros and won the Allan Cup with the team in the 1949–50 season. The same year he broke into the NHL, playing just a single game for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Also a baseball player, the Brooklyn Dodgers offered him $100 a month to play for their farm team. Hassard turned down the offer, figuring he could earn more as a hockey player. He shifted between the NHL and AHL throughout most of his career, winning a championship with the AHL's Pittsburgh Hornets in 1951–52. In 129 NHL games Hassard recorded 9 goals, 28 assists (37 points), and only 22 penalty minutes.

He won the Stanley Cup in 1951 with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
