Robert Richard "Bobby" Sheehan (born January 11, 1949 in Weymouth, Massachusetts) is a retired National Hockey League center.


Sheehan played with the junior Halifax Canadiens and the St. Catharines Black Hawks. He was drafted in the third round, 32nd overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1969 NHL Amateur Draft and went on to play parts of three seasons in the NHL. He was a reserve on the Canadiens Stanley Cup champion team in 1971 and then joined the lowly California Golden Seals. He quickly became a regular on that team and one of the top forwards for his new club. In 1972 Sheehan jumped to the New York Raiders of the WHA, who obtained his WHA rights from the New England Whalers. In 1975–76 he returned to the NHL with the Chicago Black Hawks and would transfer between the NHL and AHL until his retirement in 1983. Following 310 NHL games, Sheehan recorded 48 goals and 63 assists for 111 points.
