Frontenacs’ Jason Robertson named CHL Player of the Week
Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Dallas Stars prospect Jason Robertson of the Kingston Frontenacs is the CHL Player of the Week for the regular season week ending November 11 scoring nine points in three games with six goals and three assists.
Robertson continued scoring at a goal-per-game rate last week with two hat-trick performances including last Wednesday morning in a School Day road game against the Ottawa 67’s and Saturday night at home against the Oshawa Generals. Both contests turned into four-point efforts with an assist added in each to give him second star recognition in the 6-4 loss to Ottawa and first star honours in the 5-1 win over Oshawa. Robertson also chipped in an assist in Friday’s 2-1 loss to the Hamilton Bulldogs.
A 19-year-old from Northville, Michigan, Robertson is playing in his fourth season with the Frontenacs who made him a fourth round choice in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection. This season he’s produced 22 goals and 11 assists for 33 points in 22 games which has him ranked seventh in OHL scoring contributing to almost 58% of the team’s total offense. Robertson was a second round pick by the Stars in the 2017 NHL Draft.
Also considered for the award this week was Samuel Asselin of the Halifax Mooseheads who scored four goals and three assists for seven points in three games, and Riley Woods of the Spokane Chiefs who scored three goals and three assists for six points in two games.
