A Montreal native, right winger Bob Sirois was born Feb. 6, 1954. Drafted by the Flyers in the third round of the 1974 NHL Draft, Sirois was a talented offensive player who had trouble cracking the Flyers' deep NHL roster.
Sirois put up good offensive numbers for the Richmond Robins, the Flyers' American Hockey League affiliate, in 1974-75 and 1975-76. At the NHL level, he dressed in three games for the Flyers in 1974-75 and one the following year, scoring his lone Flyers goal and point in the third period of a 6-4 road win over the Kansas City Scouts on Jan. 14, 1975.
On Dec 15, 1975, the Flyers traded Sirois to the Washington Capitals for a player to be named later. The deal was completed when the Caps sent John Paddock to the Flyers.
