Reigning team MVP returns to Steelheads

Boise, Idaho – Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Brad Ralph announced that the Idaho Steelheads have agreed to terms with forward Brett Robinson.

Robinson, 29, will be returning for his third season in a Steelheads sweater after earning team Most Valuable Player honors in 2013-14. He had 37 points (12g-25a) in 47 games last season for Idaho with a team-best +19 rating. Just as important as individual numbers, the team’s winning percentage when Robinson was in the lineup was over .630. The Mercyhurst University product had a career-best eight-game point streak from Nov. 23 to Dec. 14.

Robinson captured a Kelly Cup championship with Cincinnati in 2010, scoring the game-winning goal in the Cyclones’ title-clinching goal in Game 5 of the Kelly Cup Finals against the Steelheads. That season, he recorded 12 points (9g-3a) in 23 postseason games.

A native of North York, Ontario, Robinson has tallied 150 points (59g-91a) in 232 career ECHL games with Cincinnati, Greenville and Idaho.
