Charles Stuart Tobin (November 24, 1885 – May 30, 1924) was a Canadian professional ice hockey player. Tobin played 175 games in various professional and amateur leagues, including the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA). Amongst the PCHA teams he played for were the New Westminster Royals, Portland Rosebuds, Seattle Metropolitans, Vancouver Millionaires and Victoria Cougars.

Personal life[edit]

Tobin was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His brother was Bill Tobin, who would later be the general manager and part-owner of the Chicago Black Hawks. Tobin died in 1924 at St. Vincent's Hospital in Portland, Oregon after illness due to ulcers of the stomach.

Playing career[edit]

Tobin first played senior-level ice hockey with the Edmonton Thistles in 1904–05. Starting in 1906, Tobin played for several teams in early western Canada professional leagues, such as Battleford of the Alberta Professional League, Winnipeg Monarchs, Winnipeg Shamrocks and Winnipeg Hockey Club of the Manitoba leagues, Prince Albert, Saskatoon and Moose Jaw of the Saskatchewan Professional League.

In 1912, the new PCHA was formed and Tobin was one of the original players, playing for the New Westminster Royals. Tobin would play the bulk of his career in the PCHA, playing with the Portland Rosebuds, Victoria Aristocrats, Seattle Metropolitans and Vancouver Millionaires. Several of the teams were PCHA champions and Tobin played in the 1916, 1920 and 1922 Stanley Cup playoffs, but did not play for a Stanley Cup champion.
