Robert Thomas Stauber (born November 25, 1967 in Duluth, Minnesota) is a retired American professional ice hockey goaltender who played 62 NHL regular season games between 1989 and 1995. He was drafted in the sixth round, 107th overall, by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1986 NHL Entry Draft.

Professional Hockey career[edit]

He made his National Hockey League debut with the Kings during the 1989–90 season, appearing in two games. He was traded (along with Alexei Zhitnik, Charlie Huddy, and a draft pick) to the Buffalo Sabres (for Grant Fuhr, Denis Tsygurov, and Philippe Boucher) during the 1994–95 season. Stauber appeared in just six games with the Sabres in that season, and had no further NHL experience.

Stauber spent most of the remainder of his professional career in the AHL and IHL, and most recently played a few games in three different seasons with the Jacksonville Barracudas in three different leagues—the Atlantic Coast Hockey League, WHA2, and Southern Professional Hockey League. The team was coached by his former teammates Ron Dugay and Bret Strot.

Coaching career[edit]

Stauber coached with the University of Minnesota Gopher's men's program as their goalie coach during back to back NCAA National Titles in 2002 and 2003. Robb now runs Stauber's Goalcrease in Edina, Minnesota. Opened in 2002, it's a 1st of it's kind facility complete with Ice Rink, Goalie Training, a goalie specific pro shop, and a team of professional goalie consultants.

Stauber also played bandy with the Dynamo Duluth. He was selected to the United States national team squad for the 2010 World Championships.[1]

Stauber is now coaching with the USA Hockey Women's National Team. He served as goalie coach during the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. His role and responsibilities have expanded since then as the program seeks more world championships and prepares for the next Olympiad.
