Simpson was a forward who played 175 games in the National Hockey League for the Atlanta Flames, Pittsburgh Penguins, and St. Louis Blues. He played three years of major junior hockey in the QMJHL for the Sherbrooke Castors and had a ten-year career as a professional. Drafted as the forth overall pick in the WHA Amateur Draft, Bobby Simpson still went on to play in the NHL instead where he was the twenty-eighth draft pick. During his three years in the QMJHL, Simpson collected 245 points and another 64 at the NHL level.[1][2] Bobby Simpson is also a full blood[3] Native American [4] from the Mohawk[5] band near Kahnawake.[6]
