Observations

January 2020 – Robertson was among the to performers for Team USA as they were disappointingly eliminated in the quarterfinals.  He once again cemented the fact that he was a steal of a pick for Toronto at 53rd overall, and that he will surely be in the running for a pro roster spot next season (or earlier, should his OHL season end early enough to allow a tryout period). Hayden Soboleski

December 2019 – Surprising no one after such a hot start to the campaign, Robertson will represent Team USA at the WJC and projects to be an important piece on a competitive roster. His 23 goals in 22 OHL games is top-5 in league scoring and in early WJC competition he already has 3 points in 2 matchups. Teams are surely regretting passing on him in the 1st Round of the 2019 Entry Draft, and he should be considered a high-priced prospect in long-term fantasy leagues. Hayden Soboleski

October 2019 – Three updates in two months is rarely necessary, but Robertson’s amazing start to the season warrants it. He is among the OHL leaders in points and goals, currently sitting at 20 and 12, respectively. This includes (but isn’t overly inflated by) six powerplay points, where the Petes are clicking offensively thanks to him and fellow Leafs draft pick Semyon Der-Argunchintsev who are lighting it up together. Hayden Soboleski

September 2019 – That was quick. Following training camp, the Leafs have signed Robertson to a 3-year ELC. Hayden Soboleski

September 2019 – As expected, Robertson has been assigned to the OHL for the 2019-20 season after a very brief Leafs training camp appearance. He was not expected to last long, but last year’s effort by SDA that earned him a contract showed us that the Leafs can be persuaded to keep youngsters around if they can knock your socks off. Robertson is expected to have a big offensive year for the Petes in his third year with the squad, so be prepared for a potential big fantasy stock increase. Hayden Soboleski

June 2019 – Robertson has been drafted 53rd overall by the Maple Leafs.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2019 – Nicholas Robertson had a strong draft-eligible campaign by scoring 27 goals and 55 points in 53 games for Peterborough of the OHL. It was even more impressive when you consider he is just four days away from eligible for the 2020-class. He began his season by scoring four goals and five points in as many games for Canada at the U18 Ivan Hlinka tournament while showcasing his burgeoning all-around game. Robertson is a great skater who blends quick acceleration with quicker edges. He owns high-end puck skills, vision, and a developing release. Isn’t afraid to push into the hard scoring areas on the ice. There is a decent chance he’s still around on day two of the draft and will make several clubs regret passing on him. He’s primed for a monster D+1 in 2019-20. Cam Robinson
