    small speedy with a wicked shot. gets into places to score, size hasnt been a factor all year. came off a major shoulder injury at start of season. could be a sleeper
    31 goals in 55 games in the dub (variety of linemates) playing as a 2nd line winger.
    won the telus cup in 2006 with hometown minto's. broke sidney crosby's scoring record in that tournement.
    thought ?

    I wondered why this guy was passed over in the 2006 NHL draft--I would have thought some NHL team would have taken him in the late rounds --so he's not big (by weight) but there are lots of small guys being ranked high now with the "new NHL" =look a pat Kane...Robetson is no Kane--but you are correct ,he has a sniper's scoring shot...

    was probably passed over cause he was playing midget AAA, and due to size and a higher level of pcompetition, nobody would have fugured he would score 30 this year. but he has got these goal primarily without a good playmaker on his line.

    Ya I've been on to him for a while now. He was one of my sleeper picks last year and will likely be one this year. I love how he gets open and can score from almost anywhere. I like his teammate DePape too.

    That is exactly it, he just finds those spots and it seems the puck comes to him. He has a great release on his shot too. He has good chemistry with Ryan McDonald and Ryan DePape. All 3 of them are having good years on a not so good team. All 3 of them are 88 birthdates too.

    Robertson with a hat-trick tonight to help the Raiders clinch a play-off spot. 37 goals on the year with 1 game left. Tied for 5th in the league for goals now and is 1st in the league for Rookie goal scoring.

    Wow... I imagine he won't remain an unknown for much longer. Unless there's a fatal flaw we can't see from looking at the stats. :dunno:

    Yea, and granted you have to be phenominal to play in the league at any height under 5'10, there are plenty of 'em... if he's as good as he seems to be, he shouldn't have a problem, I guess only time will tell.

    I watched the first 2 games of the series in Bdn. Robertson is definitely small!! He is quick, but not the fastest guy on the ice. You know, McDonald was more noticeable than Robertson. But I think his point production will get even better next year as he will be older, and the team will be a lot better. He's a bit like Clark from the Wheaties, good player in the dub but is he honestly too small to progress much further? He's likely worth a later pick in the draft, label him a project...
