Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Rob Robinson
Rob Robinson was born April 19, 1957 in St. Catherines, Ontario. The 6th choice, 117th overall of the St. Louis Blues in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft, Robinson's father Doug played for the Chicago Black Hawks, the New York Rangers and the Los Angeles Kings during the 1960's and early 1970's.

After spending four years at the University of Miami of Ohio, Robinson joined the Blues affiliate team in Peoria of the International Hockey League where he played in eleven games at the end of his senior year.

The 1989-90 season was Robinson's first full season in Peoria. A stay at home defenceman, Robinson finished his inaugural season in the IHL with 13 points before returning for a second season in 1990-91 and being named an IHL Second Team All-Star, leading the Rivermen to the 1991 Turner Cup championship.

Although he spent the majority of the 1991-92 season in Peoria, Robinson made his NHL debut with the Blues during the 1991-92 season suiting up for 22 games and recording his first and only career NHL point.

Even though St. Louis traded him to the Tampa Bay Lightning during the off season, Robinson returned to Peoria for one more season before joining the IHL's Kalamzoo Wings in 1993-94. After only one season in Kalamazoo, Robinson found himself with the IHL's Houston Aeros in 1994-95, before becoming a member of the American Hockey League's Syracuse Crunch in 1995-96.

Rob Robinson went overseas in 1996-97 after spending the previous seven years in North America. Robinson had stops in Austria and Germany before landing in Britain in 1998-99 where he seems to have found a home with the Manchester Storm, where he has spent the past three seasons.

Throughout his NHL career, Rob Robinson has played in 22 games while managing one assist for one point.
