Robert Theodore Bauer (b. February 16, 1915, in Waterloo, Ontario - d. September 16, 1964) was a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger who played 10 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Boston Bruins.

Playing career

Along with fellow Hall of Famers Woody Dumart and Milt Schmidt, Bauer helped lead the Bruins to two Stanley Cups in 1939 and 1941. The trio of players grew up playing together with the Kitchener Greenshirts of the OHA (Ontario Hockey Association) and became collectively known as the Kraut line. Bauer recorded 260 points in 328 games in a career that was interrupted by his service with the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II.

In 1952, Bauer went on to serve as general manager, coach, and president of the Kitchener-Waterloo Dutchmen. As a coach he led the club to two OHA championships and two Allan Cup titles. The second feat resulted in the Dutchmen being selected to represent Canada at the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina, Italy, where they earned the bronze medal. Returning to Canada, Bauer briefly retired from coaching, only to be talked into guiding the Dutchmen at the 1960 Games in Squaw Valley, California, where they received the silver.

He was the elder brother of David Bauer, OC, a Basilian priest, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a builder in 1989. Bobby Bauer would follow his brother into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a player in 1996.

He died in September 16, 1964, age 49.
