Robert Earl Davidson (February 10, 1912 in Toronto, Ontario - September 26, 1996) was a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who played 12 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Bob Davidson on occasion went by the nickname "Rugged Robert" by his teammates. He played his entire NHL career with the Toronto Maple Leafs. He played in the NHL from 1933–34 to 1945–46. He played on two Stanley Cup winning teams. His first was in 1941–42 and his second in the 1944–45 season in which he was Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Bob Davidson served as Captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs from 1943–44 to 1944–45. After his playing days were over he stayed on with the Leafs organization in a number of different capacities. His most notable was as Chief Scout. Bob Davidson is considered by many to be one of the best hockey scouts of all time and was credited with building the Toronto Maple Leafs teams during the 1960s which dominated the NHL by winning the Stanley Cup four times (1961–62, 1962–63, 1963–64, 1966–67) within a six year period. Davidson name was engraved on the cup 1962, 1967, but was a member of all 4 cups wins by Toronto in the 1960s. In 1995 the Board of Directors of the Toronto Maple Leafs organization awarded Bob Davidson with the J. P. Bickell Memorial Award.
