Arcadia native, Jr. Kings grad Robertson named OHL Player of the Week
The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Dallas Stars prospect Jason Robertson of the Kingston Frontenacs is the OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week for the regular-season week ending Nov. 11 after leading the league with nine points in three games, scoring six goals and three assists.
Robertson has been the league’s most prolific goal scorer to start the 2018-19 campaign and continued his torrid pace with a pair of hat tricks last week.
He scored three and added an assist on Wednesday morning in School Day action against the Ottawa 67’s earning second star honors despite the 6-4 loss. He also lit the lamp for three on Saturday night while adding an assist as first star of a 5-1 win over the Oshawa Generals. In between, he contributed an assist on the Frontenacs’ lone goal against the Hamilton Bulldogs in a 2-1 loss on Friday.
Robertson has averaged exactly a goal-per-game in 22 contests and has four hat-tricks this season bringing his career total to eight.
A 19-year-old from Arcadia, Robertson is playing in his fourth season with the Frontenacs, who made him a fourth-round choice in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection. He’s currently sixth in league scoring with 33 points and has accounted for nearly 40 percent of his team’s goals while contributing to almost 58 percent of their total offense.
In 212 career games he’s scored 123 times with 110 assists collecting 233 points.
Robertson was selected by the Stars in the second round of the 2017 NHL Draft.
In his youth days, Robertson skated for the Pasadena Maple Leafs and Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
