Alex Robinson Signs On With Peterborough Petes - Junior Hockey News
Published: Thursday, 2 Aug 2012
The Peterborough Petes have signed 1995-born defenseman Alex Robinson to an OHL Hockey and Education Package earlier today. Robinson was drafted by the Petes in the ninth round, 164th overall, in the 2011 OHL Priority Selection.
In 2011-12, Robinson, a Stittsville, Ontario native, played for the Kanata Stallions of the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) in which he registered four goals with 22 assists and 37 penalty minutes in 61 games. The year prior to playing for the Stallions, the 6'2" 185 lb. defenseman skated for the Ottawa Valley Titans of the Ontario East Minor Hockey League (OEMHL) where he scored six goals and 20 assists in 29 games and was among the top blueliners in the league. He's been described as a strong skater with an OHL-ready shot from the point.
Once projected as a second-to-third round pick last year, Robinson was rumored to have interest in going the NCAA route and as a result went in the ninth round, but his signing with the Petes has silenced all of that. Robinson will report to the team's training camp later this month.
Other OHL News: The London Knights have brought in Rob Simpson as the team's Assistant General Manager and will begin his first day on the job this Tuesday, August 7. Simpson, a London, Ontario native, will also be involed in Public Relations and Media Inquiries as he will share the duties with Marketing Manager, Natalie Wakabayashi.
