Robert Wayne "Robbie" Tallas (born March 20, 1973) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey goaltender. He played in the National Hockey League with the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks, appearing in 99 NHL games and compiling a record of 28–42–10. He has been serving as the goaltending consultant for the Florida Panthers since August 2009.[1]

He came out of retirement for one game on March 3, 2013 as a backup goalie for the Florida Panthers.[2] Then, exactly two years later, on March 3, 2015, during a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, both Panthers goalies (Roberto Luongo and Al Montoya) were injured during play. Montoya stayed in the game, and Tallas quickly went to the dressing room to dress as his emergency backup. He warmed up in the tunnel, but Luongo was able to re-dress and return to the game, sparing Tallas from action.[3] In both instances, Tallas had suited up, registered on the official team roster, and could have been called on the ice as a replacement but ended up not playing because the originally planned goaltender returned before a replacement was needed.
