From an early age Bobby started playing hockey, first joining the minor hockey team in Belleville and then the Woodstock Warriors, and led the team to the 1955 Sutherland Cup. He joined the Chicago Black Hawks in 1957, but before that he played for the Galt Black Hawks and the St. Catharines Teepees of the Ontario Hockey Association.

In his first season with the Black Hawks, Bobby played in 70 games earning 47 points from 13 goals and 34 assists. He came in second on the ballot for the Rookie of the Year award, but despite not winning the award, it became obvious from the first season that Bobby would leave a mark on the NHL. He played for the Black Hawks until 1972, earning numerous recognitions, such as 10 NHH First All-Star Team appearances, while in 1965 and 1966 he won the Hart Memorial Trophy, the Art Ross Trophy in 1960, 1962 and 1966 for leading the NHL players in points, and in 1961 he and the Black Hawks defeated the Detroit Red Wings in the Stanley Cup Finals to claim the trophy.

Unfortunately, Bobby wasn’t satisfied with the money he received for his efforts, and as a result left the Black Hawks and the NHL completely to join the Winnipeg Jets for a $1 million bonus signing and a $1.75 contract over 10 years, which increased his wealth to a large degree; in the first three years, Bobby was also the coach of the Jets. He continued to play extremely well, being named the WHA Most Valuable Player in 1973 and 1975, then won the Avco Cup with the Jets in 1976, 1978 and 1979. He wanted to retire after 1979 season as injuries began to affect his performance, but after the NHL and WHA merged he decided to stay in Winnipeg for one more season. He played in only 18 games before he was traded to the Hartford Whalers, and finished the 1979-1980 season with nine games for the Whalers after which he decided to retire. He tried to make a comeback as a New York Ranger, but without success; he was 42 at the time of his tryouts with the Rangers.

Bobby finished his playing career with 1,063 games in the NHL, 610 goals scored, 560 assists and 1,170 points, while in the WHA he played in 411 games, scoring 303 goals, making 335 assists which were enough for 638 points.

He has been inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame, Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame, World Hockey Association Hall of Fame, and the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Regarding his personal life, Bobby was married to Joanne McKay from 1960 to 1980, with whom he had five children. Following their divorce, Bobby was in a relationship with Claudia Allen with whom he had a daughter before they broke up. From 1984 he has been married to Deborah.
