Robinson returns to Idaho, Steelheads sign Perrault


Boise, Idaho – Idaho Steelheads Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Brad Ralph announced Wednesday morning that goaltender Josh Robinson has been reassigned by the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League and that the team has agreed to terms with rookie defenseman Andrew Perrault out of Lake Superior State University.

The Steelheads are the ECHL affiliate of Texas and the National Hockey League’s Dallas Stars.

Robinson, the reigning team MVP, has split the season between Idaho and Texas. With Idaho, the second-year pro is 9-6-1 with a 2.77 goals-against average. In Texas, he’s 6-6-0 with a 3.30 goals-against average. His 36 wins with Idaho are the third-most in the team’s ECHL era, behind Steve Silverthorn (68) and Rejean Beauchemin (42).

Perrault just completed his college career at Lake Superior State.  He ranked in the team’s top three in blocked shots in three of his four seasons at the school and chipped in a career-best 14 points as a junior.
