The Milwaukee Admirals have recalled forward Eric Robinson from his loan assignment to the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. The move comes with Vladislav Kamenev‘s two-game suspension coming to a close when the Admirals next play on Thursday morning in Iowa.
Robinson joined the Admirals late last season when he finished up his collegiate career at Dartmouth. He suited up for 10 games and scored a goal in that time. He signed a PTO contract with the Admirals to start this season, took part in various activities in Nashville’s pre-season and rookie development camps, and was loaned out to the Cyclones to begin his 2015-16 season in the ECHL. He’s hit the ground running with Cincinnati: 6 points (3 goals, 3 assists) in 4 games. His recall to the Admirals comes after a Halloween game that saw Robinson score 2 goals in a 5-1 Cyclones win.
Will Robinson factor into the Admirals lineup on Thursday? Are certain struggling forwards at risk of being scratched for the likes of potential producers such as Robinson?
