Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Geordie Robertson
Geordie Robertson was born August 1, 1959 in Victoria, B.C. Brother of former Hartford Whaler Torrie Roberston, Geordie Robertson was a graduate of the Western Canadian Junior Hockey League's Victoria Cougars where he spent four seasons before signing as a free agent with the Buffalo Sabres in the summer of 1979.

After signing with the Sabres, Robertson was assigned to the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester. Robertston spent three seasons in Rochester before making his NHL debut with the Sabres during the 1982-83 season.

In five games with the Sabres during the 1982-83 season, Robertson accounted for three points on two goals and one assist while spending the majority of the season in Rochester, leading the Americans to the 1983 Calder Cup Championship.

Robertson returned to the Americans line up for the 1983-84 and 1984-85 seasons before signing as a free agent with the Detroit Red Wings in the summer of 1985. Assigned to Detroit's AHL affiliate in Adirondack at the beginning of the 1985-86 season, Robertson led his team in scoring and led them to the 1986 Calder Cup Championship.

After capturing the 1986 Calder Cup, Robertson returned to Adirondack for the 1986-87 season before heading overseas to Finland for the 1987-88 season. Even though he spent a good part of the 1987-88 season in Finland, Robertson returned to the AHL and to the Adirondack line up to finish the season before calling it a career following his 1988-89 season in Rochester.

In five career NHL games Geordie Robertson amassed one goal and two assists for three points.
