Josh Robinson (G)
Enters his second professional season in 2013-14. Undrafted, Robinson signed a standard AHL contract with Texas for the 2012-13 season and after attending training camp with the Stars, was assigned to the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads. He made his pro debut with Idaho on October 19, 2012 on the road against the Colorado Eagles. Robinson was named the ECHL Goaltender of the Week after just two weeks of action and he did not suffer a regulation loss until December 19, 2012 at Utah, in his 14th career pro game; by the end of December 2012 he was 12-2-1, with one overtime loss and one shootout loss on his record. Robinson ranked second in the ECHL in wins (27), shutouts (5) and save percentage (0.925), fourth in saves (1,245), sixth in minutes played (2,362) and ninth in the league in goals-against average (2.57). He also appeared in 13 post-season games for the Steelheads during the 2013 Kelly Cup Playoffs, earning a 5-7 record with a 2.50 GAA, a 0.919 SV% and one shutout, leading Idaho to the Western Conference Finals before losing to the Stockton Thunder in five games. Robinson was recalled to Texas three times last season and served as the Stars backup goaltender for three AHL games. He signed his second one-year AHL contract with the Stars on July 12, 2013. Robinson played four years of NCAA Division I college hockey for Michigan Technological University of the WCHA. During his senior season, he posted a 15-14-4 record in 34 starts, recording the most wins by a Michigan Tech goalie in a single season since 1992-93. Thanks for Robinson’s outstanding senior year, he was named the Merv Youngs Award winner as Michigan Tech’s most valuable player and was a three-time WCHA Defensive Player of the Week. He was also a two-time WCHA All-Academic Team member and earned his bachelor’s degree in marketing with a minor in coaching. Robinson is an avid tennis player and was recruited by several NCAA Division III schools before he chose to play Division I hockey at Michigan Tech.
