A team captain in 1974-75, Bob Dobek held the career scoring record at Bowling Green at the time of his graduation, and his career average of 2.1 points per game is by far the best in school history. His 228 career points in 108 games stands eighth on the BG scoring list, and he still ranks in the top ten in both career goals and assists.

The team's leading scorer all three years, Dobek earned All-CCHA honorable mention his freshman year, then landed on the first team the next two seasons. His 44 goals and five hat tricks in 1973-74 are still the most in a season by a Falcon, and the 86 total points he scored set a school record, and now stand as the third most in school history. On February 1, 1974, Dobek beat Western Michigan's Weldon Good on a penalty shot late in the second period, the first successful penalty shot in school history.

His junior year, Dobek added to his goals record with a school record 58 assists, a mark he now shares with Paul Ysebaert. He was named BG's Outstanding Forward for the second consecutive year. He left Bowling Green for the U.S. National Team, and with Doug Ross, became the first Falcon hockey Olympians. Dobek scored 47 goals in 64 international games with the U.S. team as they finished fifth in the 1976 Olympics.

He was inducted to the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1983, and in 2002, his son Bryan joined the Falcon hockey team.
