WATERLOO, Ont. (August 18, 2016) - Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s hockey head coach GREG PUHALSKI
announced on Thursday that they have added former Kitchener Rangers forward Brandon Robinson
to their recruiting class for the 2016-17 season.
Robinson, a 6-3, 216 lbs. power forward, spent the last three years with the Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Last season, in 55 games with Kitchener, he scored 17 goals and recorded 18 assists before adding nine points, including six goals, in the Rangers run to the second round of the OHL playoffs.
"We are pleased Brandon chose Laurier for his academic and athletic career,” said Puhalski of his latest addition. “He's got great character and he's looking forward to donning the purple and gold this season."
Robinson’s best year with Kitchener came in 2014-15 when he recorded a career-high 25 goals and 29 assists for 54 points in 62 games.
Over the course of his five-year OHL career, that also included time with the Brampton/North Bay franchise, Robinson scored 81 goals and registered 82 assists for 163 points in 276 games.
Robinson’s addition brings Coach Puhalski’s recruiting class number to 11 for the season after the team announce 10 recruits back in July. The Hawks officially hit the ice for training camp on Tuesday, September 6 with an open-tryout scrimmage and will play their first non-conference game on Wednesday, September 14 on the road against the Waterloo Warriors.
