Robertson (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Robertson missed a week with the unknown injury. The 21-year-old winger is in the mix for a roster spot in 2020-21, and he may work in a bottom-six role to begin the year. A second-round pick from 2017, Robertson is also expected to see time on the power play, giving him some appeal in deeper fantasy formats.
Robertson (undisclosed) won't practice Wednesday, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
The Stars won't be releasing any details regarding the specific nature or severity of Robertson's issue, but for now, there's no reason to believe he's dealing with anything long term. The 21-year-old winger has primarily been skating on Dallas' fourth line while also seeing time with the first power-play unit through the first few days of camp.
Robertson is among the 13 players the Stars have added to their training camp roster, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Along with Robertson, Dallas added Ty Dellandrea, Rhett Gardner, Joel L'Esperance, Joel Kiviranta, Nick Caamano, Gavin Bayreuther, Joel Hanley, Thomas Harley, Dillon Heatherington, Landon Bow, Jake Oettinger and Colton Point to its expanded roster Saturday. Most of these players will have next to no shot at seeing game action once postseason play gets underway, but Robertson should top the list of potential injury substitutes after racking up 25 goals and 47 points in 60 AHL games this campaign.
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.
Robertson racked up four assists in OHL Niagara's 10-0 rout of Hamilton on Thursday.
Robertson has now posted a ridiculous 28 points in 12 games since being traded to the IceDogs from Kingston. In addition to his production at the junior level, Robertson had a strong showing in helping the United States take home the silver medal at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship over the holiday season. Robertson is a poor skater and really labors getting around the ice at times, but there is no doubt he is an elite offensive player with the puck on his stick. Dynasty league owners should roll the dice on Dallas' 2017 second-round selection.
Robertson signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Stars on Thursday.
Nabbed by the Stars in the second round (39th overall) of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, Robertson looks to be taking the next step in his career after notching 200 regular-season points (101 goals, 99 assists) over 190 games with OHL Kingston between 2015-18, not including postseason play in which he added 38 points in 31 contests. A lack of game-to-game consistency has been a problem for Robertson early in his career and it remains to be seen how he'll adjust to stiffer competition, but fantasy owners in dynasty/keeper leagues should still consider keeping tabs on him in case he is the real deal.
Robertson posted two goals and an assist to lead OHL Kingston to a 7-1 win over Sarnia on Friday.
The offensive outburst gives Robertson 11 goals and 17 points in 16 games on the season, and he has also racked up 78 shots. No one has ever doubted Robertson's ability to put the puck in the net (he scored 42 times for Kingston in 2016-17), but he disappears for long stretches of time, and he is a below-average skater. He is going to put up big numbers as long as he remains healthy, but there are definitely aspects of the game he needs to work on throughout the course of the season.
