2008-09: Dennis Robertson scored 1 goal with 12 assists while accumulating 68 PMs in 59 games (including playoffs) for the BCHL’s Langley Chiefs.
2009-10: Robertson scored 9 goals with 25 assists in 53 games in his second season with Langley. In 10 BCHL playoff games, he had 2 goals and 2 assists with both scores coming on the power play. Robertson committed to playing college hockey at Brown University in 2010-11.
2010-11: Robertson was named to the ECACHL’s All-Rookie team after scoring 6 goals with 11 assists in 30 games for Brown. Robertson was especially effective on the power play with five of his six goals coming on the man advantage (he also had 6 assists on the power play). Robertson was selected by the Maple Leafs in the 6th round (173rd overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft.
2011-12: Robertson was the leader amongst Brown University defensemen in both points and penalty minutes in his sophomore season. He scored 2 goals and had 14 assists, one less than senior forward Jack MacLellan (NSH), the Bears' leading scorer. Robertson had 72 penalty minutes in 32 games and was minus-17 on a team that was 9-18-3 and finished last in the 12-team ECAC Hockey League.
Robertson was a surprising scorer and logged a lot of minutes as a freshman at Brown. Overshadowed by teammate Tim Daly, a St. Cloud State recruit, while in junior hockey, he has developed into an intriguing prospect. He has a big, hard shot, which makes him a threat offensively, particularly on the power play and is sound in his own end of the ice. He should continue to develop in a top four role with Brown.
Robertson is the captain of Brown University's squad for the 2012-13 season. Robertson took advantage of the opportunity to play fairly early at Brown and his production was impressive. Robertson will need to continue to develop if he is to have the same success as the level of competition increases. As with most sixth round picks, he faces long odds to one day compete at the NHL level, but his willingness to attack and heavy shot could make him a valuable option as a power play quarterback.
