The Blackburn HAWKS have continued to add to an already strong squad with the signing of GB U18 and Elite League defenseman Scott Robson on a two-way deal with the Hull Stingrays.
Robson caught the eye of the Hull outfit following spells with the Trafford Metros and Manchester Junior Pheonix, playing 37 games at Elite League level last season.
His smooth skating, ability to create time and space for teammates and cool head in the defensive zone are likely to prove a great asset as the Hawks chase more silverware this year.
Hawks Player-Coach Jared Owen said:
“Scott has been training in Blackburn during the summer and as really impressed me, Dangie and the team with his ability on the ice. He approached us earlier this year and said that Hull were looking for him to get more regular ice time and continue his development. Once the opportunity presented itself we jumped at it.
“Scott has previously played with the Blackburn Juniors and we’ve been following his career so far with interest. He’s played in the top-tier of hockey in this country and you can see a real difference in his game since training and playing in the Elite League over the last season. We’re really grateful to Sylvain Cloutier and the Hull Stingrays organization for giving us the chance to benefit from the two-way deal and I’m sure he will become a very welcome addition to the team for the new season.”
The Hawks squad is now almost complete with the final announcements over the coming days.
