Jason Robertson, RW

Shoots: L Height: 6-02 Weight: 196
Born: 1999-07-02 Hometown:  Northville, Mich. USA Drafted: 2nd round 2017 39th overall DAL
          Observations: May 2018 – Robertson recently signed his ELC after another solid campaign with Kingston. He maintained his goal scoring pace this year by scoring 41 times in 68 games. Robertson scored 98 goals in his last 163 games including playoffs, where he had 15 in 27games. He was mentioned in many categories for the 2017-2018 OHL coaches poll. Here is a list of some of his nominations:
  • Smartest Player: Second behind Robert Thomas (he finished third in 2016-2017)
  • Most Dangerous in Goal Area: Third behind Owen Tippett and Dmitry Sokolov (he finished secnd in 2016-2017)
  • Best Shot: Third behind Andrei Svechnikov and Owen Tippett
  • Best Shoot-out shooter : Third behind Aaron Luchuk and Adam Thilander (he finished third in 2016-2017)
These nominations are all pointing toward Robertson being a dangerous goal scorer. He doesn’t have much left to prove in the OHL next season and in the event of a strong training camp, he could begin the year with the big club. Under Ken Hitchcock the Stars were not recognized for giving chances to young players, and with the nomination of Jim Montgomery as the team’s new bench boss, he might open some doors for younger players. Robertson is worth tracking in September if you’re in a deep fantasy league that includes rookies. JP Macoul     December 2017 – Robertson has been scorching in the OHL. Certainly what the Stars had in mind when they drafted him with the 39th overall pick in last years draft. He’s one of the OHL’s leading scorers and takes almost five shots a game (leading the league). Robertson is showing signs of becoming a really nice fantasy producer. Matt Kowalski   July 2017 – Robertson followed up a solid rookie season in Kingston with a breakout performance offensively where he was contributing to nearly half of the teams total goal scoring production. Robertson posted 42 goals and 81 points as a man on an island after the Fronts lost several key players from the previous season via graduation to pro ranks and trade. Robertson is a goal scoring winger with a lethal shot. He is deadly accurate, has a very quick release and can score greasy goals from in close with solid hand-eye coordination as well as relying on his shot from longer range. The knock on his game is his skating, it is choppy and lacks an explosive first step. However, he compensates for this well at the junior level by relying on his above average hockey sense. His anticipation of where the play will develop allows him to stay in the play despite his skating shortcoming. Skating can be improved with coaching and training. His hockey sense is evident in the offensive zone in particular as he has an uncanny ability to jump into open ice precisely as the puck arrives for a scoring chance. Robertson also has good size and uses it well to control and protect the puck. He needs to create more space for himself by being more aggressive.
