Robert A. McIntosh '77 ended his hockey career at Brown as the school's number two all-time leading scorer with 160 career points. The native of Thornhill, Ontario, warmed up to his task with a brilliant career at Thornhill High and then several years of Junior "B" hockey before coming to Brown. Playing wing on the 19-0 freshman team in 1973-74, McIntosh set Cub records for assists (55) and points (89) and slapped six goals home against Princeton. McIntosh had 40 points on 19 goals and 21 assists as a sophomore but really blossomed his junior year with 27 goals and 39 assists for 66 points. He was the second leading scorer in the Ivy League that season (trailing only teammate Bill Gilligan) and was named to the All-Ivy first team. He and Gilligan formed one of the most feared scoring duos in the country that year as Brown compiled a 23-7 record and finished third in the nationals. By scoring 54 points on 35 goals and 19 assists as a senior, Bob McIntosh climbed past Bobby Wheeler (149) and Don Sennott (159) and settled into second place in Brown's hockey scoring parade. One of the most exciting nights for Brown's colorful win came against Penn at Meehan Auditorium in February of 1977 when the 5-10, 170-pounder pumped home six goals against Penn, including a hat trick in the third period. "Bob had fantastic moves when carrying the puck," says his coach, Dick Toomey. "He was also a real competitor. If we practiced five hours a day, Bob would have been on the ice 10 hours. He was so good offensively that he could actually embarrass the defense and the goalie with his feints and moves." Toomey feels that one of the things that made McIntosh great was that he was an exceptionally quick starter. "He would glide across the ice faking with his head and shoulders as he came into the offensive zone. He also could change directions quickly to get open for a shot. Bob had a good wrist shot when he came to Brown but then he worked hard to develop his backhand to increase his scoring potential." Bob McIntosh now lives in Thornhill, Ontario.
