Huskies Second Round Brings Familer Name !by Dave Smith | August 29, 2017, 10:27 AM ET
A do-it-all type of rearguard…a guy the coach can rely upon in key situations…skates well with very strong balance and overall mobility…has impressive vision reading the forecheck and poise when pressured…excellent ability handling and distributing the puck…makes crisp breakout passes…sees the ice well and does not force pucks into bad situations…will rush the puck, but is more effective making the pass and then skating hard to follow up the play…plays with a physical side even though he is not overly large…his defensive play is constantly strong, utilizing positioning and his stick to disrupt his opponent…uses his frame to separate the attacker from the puck…his defensive anticipation is outstanding as he steps up to disrupt passes…has a heavy point shot that is a real weapon to score or deflect…upside of a stable top-four NHL defender.
" His play at summer show case was the reason we wanted Robin. He has all the tools , plus cannon shot and hockey smarts. We put a premium this year on skating , skill and hockey sense. We feel the SICHL'S future is all about speed. Look at the draft at the top the last few years , how do you keep up to these burners. You need faster defenders. " said DR Morrison.
