Bob Logan is a smart guy. A gifted student and hockey player, Logan balanced a promising hockey career with his studies in mechanical engineering at Yale University.
The young forward began apprenticing with the AHL Rochester Americans where he was red hot .He scored 30 times in 56 contests to earn a trial at the NHL level. He scored seven goals in 22 games in the NHL, including a goal in his very first game. He would return to the minors that spring and score 15 points in the playoffs while helping the Americans win the Calder Cup.
Logan scored 23 goals for Rochester in 1987-88 and was recalled to Buffalo for 16 more games but he could only muster 3 goals. The Sabres gave up on him early the following season, trading him to Wayne Gretzky's Los Angeles Kings. Logan would spend most of his time in the minor leagues, but did play 4 games for the Kings.
Logan extended his career with part of a season in Switzerland, but retired in 1990. He scored 10 goals and 15 points in 42 NHL games.
Logan went into the hockey equipment manufacturing business after his retirement, becoming the product-testing director for Canstar Sports Group, which makes Bauer, Cooper, Nike and other hockey products.
