After amassing an impressive 2.07 points per game average as a Peterborough Junior, Bob Curtis graduated to the 1954 Peterborough Timbermen, helping win a Mann Cup in his very first year as a Senior player.
He helped his team earn the league championship four more times (1955-57, ‘59), earning a stellar 2.57 points/game average. He was a top ten scorer for the first six years of his career (1954-60), but was more than an offensive force. Bob was also known as a talented loose ball man and a quiet leader who let his play do the talking.
In 224 career games, Curtis scored 365 goals and 210 assists for 575 points.
His number was raised to the rafters by Peterborough in 2009.
