Bob Probert (born Robert Alan Probert on June 5, 1965) was a Canadian professional ice hockey forward.

He played for the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks in the National Hockey League (NHL).

While a successful player by some measures, including being voted to the 1987–88 Campbell Conference all-star team, he was best known for his activities as a fighter and enforcer as well as being one half of the "Bruise Brothers" with then-Red Wing teammate Joey Kocur during the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Bob was also known for his off-ice antics and legal problems.
