Arcadia native Robertson awarded OHL Player of the Week honors
The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Nick Robertson of the Peterborough Petes is the OHL Player of the Week.
Robertson went off for 10 points in three games, including five goals and five assists, along with a plus/minus rating of plus-8.
The 19-year-old Arcadia native led the Petes to a perfect 3-0 week, outscoring opponents 25-2 in the process as he increased his goal-scoring total to a Canadian Hockey League-leading 55.
The third-year winger scored a goal in Thursday’s 8-0 blanking of the visiting Hamilton Bulldogs. He earned First Star honors with two goals and two assists in Saturday’s 5-1 victory over the Mississauga Steelheads on home ice, finishing the game with seven shots on goal. Robertson rounded out the weekend with his second five-point effort of the season, scoring twice while adding three assists as the Petes took it to the Niagara IceDogs in a 12-1 road win.
Robertson leads the CHL with 55 goals, tacking on 31 assists for the OHL’s ninth-best total of 86 points over 46 games.
A second-round pick (53rd overall) of the Maple Leafs last summer, Robertson represented the United States at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship this past January.
The Petes selected Robertson with the 16th overall pick of the 2017 OHL Priority Selection from the Toronto Red Wings Minor Midgets.
