Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Earl Robinson
Earle Robinson first made the stats sheets while skating for the Montreal Victorias senior club in 1926-27. He then joined the Can-Am League to play for the Philadelphia Arrows during the campaign that followed. His offensive output was sufficiently solid to catch the attention of the Montreal Maroons of the NHL who brought him on board for the start of the 1928-29 season.

The move marked the start of a nine-year association with the Maroons that provided Robinson with a venue to develop his game from a low scoring journeyman to a respectable forward with some fire in his stick.

During his second campaign in Montreal, the versatile forward was dispatched to the Windsor Bulldogs of the IAHL where he continued to refine his game. During the 1930-31 season, he led the league in scoring with 63 points in 48 games. As such, the Maroons brought him back to Montreal for half a season before returning him to the Bulldogs to close out the campaign.

In 1932-33, however, Robinson finally secured a regular spot on the Maroons' roster. From then on, he became a solid performer who could be counted on for steady offensive production. All of his efforts reached a peak at the close of the 1934-35 season when the Maroons won their second and final Stanley Cup as a franchise.

Robinson remained with the club for an additional three seasons before being traded to the Chicago Blackhawks. By then, his offensive performance had been in decline for some time. The following year, he was sold to the Montreal Canadiens where he played only eleven games before leaving the NHL for good.

From there, he skated for the New Haven Eagles of the IAHL and the Research Colonels of the Toronto Senior League where he retired in 1942-43.
