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.
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 three seasons with the Jacksonville Barracudas in three different leagues—the Atlantic Coast Hockey League, WHA2, and Southern Professional Hockey League.
