The Stars reassigned Robertson to AHL Texas on Monday. Robertson made his NHL debut Thursday and notched a power-play assist, and he played in two games over the weekend and totaled four shots on net. The 2017 second-round pick (39th overall) is having an impressive season in his first year in the minors, as he's racked up 20 goals and 15 assists across 49 games. The 20-year-old will continue to play top-line minutes in the AHL and may get another look at the top level this season.
Robertson picked up a power-play assist in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs. The 20-year-old earned the secondary helper on Tyler Seguin's third-period tally. Robertson added a hit and skated 12:18 in his NHL debut. He's amassed 35 points in 49 games with AHL Texas this season. A second-round pick from 2017, Robertson isn't likely to make a fantasy impact in 2019-20, but he could be a name to watch for owners in dynasty formats.
Robertson was promoted from AHL Texas on Thursday. Robertson's recall comes as Alexander Radulov (upper body) was designated for injured reserve. In 49 minor-league games this year, the 20-year-old Robertson has racked up 20 goals and 15 helpers. While the winger figures to slot into a bottom-six spot, if he can bring that same scoring touch to the NHL, he could see his role increase during Radulov's absence.
Robertson has been named a 2018-19 OHL First Team All-Star. Leading the league in scoring (117 points in 62 games) will often lead to such an honor. Robertson began the year in Kingston before being shipped to Niagara in November. He was equally productive with each club. Originally a second-round selection (39th overall) of Dallas in 2017, Robertson's pro future is in question due to a lack of foot speed. Still, it's difficult to look at the offensive production and not get excited about Robertson's abilities. His transition to professional hockey this coming fall will be fascinating to watch.
Robertson (117 points) won the 2018-19 OHL Scoring Championship. The Dallas property and Niagara IceDogs forward bested North Bay forward Justin Brazeau by four points for the honor. Robertson posted those 117 points in just 62 games. In addition to his brilliant OHL showing, the talented prospect also played well for Team USA at the World Junior Championship in helping the club take home the silver medal. Robertson's lack of foot speed is a legitimate concern moving forward, but he's an extremely gifted offensive player. Look for him to begin the 2019-20 season in the AHL.
