Robert Pearson
Right Wing
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 206

Born: 8 Mar 1971
Birthplace: Oshawa, ON, Canada
Drafted: TOR / 1989 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 1st (12th overall)

Rob Pearson joined the Toronto Maple Leafs organization at the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. He wouldn't have to face the scrutiny and spotlight accorded to Leafs first round draft selections single- handedly. That draft saw the Leafs select Pearson and two of his Belleville Bulls teammates (Scott Thornton and Steve Bancroft) all in the first round.

A prolific junior scorer in tandem with Eric Lindros of the Oshawa Generals later, Pearson's first full season with the Leafs came in 1992-93. Gifted with a heavy shot and a strong forechecking ability, the right-winger recorded eight power play goals and three game-winners among his 23 tallies while leading the team with 211 penalty minutes that season. He played in 14 playoff games during each of the team's exciting post-season runs to the conference final in 1993 and 1994.

The native of Oshawa, Ontario scored 49 goals and added 42 assists in 192 career games with the Leafs from 1991 to 1994. He would later play with the Capitals and Blues in his NHL career.
