Following the conclusion of the 2017 Petes Development Camp, Peterborough Petes General Manager Mike Oke has announced that forward Nick Robertson has signed a standard player agreement.
Robertson, a 5’6”, 135lbs centre who was drafted by the Petes in the 1st round, 16th overall in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection, comes off of a strong minor midget season with the Toronto Red Wings of the GTHL. In 32 games, he recorded 18 goals, 18 assists, 36 points and 20 penalty minutes. Robertson also appeared in 4 games with the North York Rangers of the OJHL where he tallied 3 assists.
“We’re excited that Nick has committed to playing with the Petes and in the Ontario Hockey League,” noted General Manager Mike Oke. “During the process leading up to the draft, Nick was very impressive in all facets. He has demonstrated that he’s a good player who is committed to working hard on and off the ice to get better every day.”
The native of Northville, Michigan will join his older brother Jason Robertson, a forward with the Kingston Frontenacs, in the East Division.
“It’s an amazing feeling to sign with the Petes,” exclaimed Robertson. “Signing now means that I can work hard in the summer knowing where I’ll be next season, and that I can go into training camp with confidence.”
