The Stockton Record
STOCKTON – Matt Robinson is considered a scorer, but recently he has answered his coach’s challenge to become a more physical player.
Thunder coach Matt Thomas asked Robinson to be tougher on defense, hit more and contest for loose pucks near the net. The results have been impressive.
Robinson’s physical play has added an edge to his game and has helped make him one of the team’s more reliable players. Robinson and the Thunder play the Victoria Salmon Kings at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday at Stockton Arena. Stockton (26-22-8) is coming off a 4-1 win over Victoria (30-22-6) on Wednesday.
