The Milwaukee Admirals have reassigned Eric Robinson on loan to the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. This move comes following the return of Colton Sissons from the Nashville Predators this past weekend and the expected return to game action of Stevie Moses after suffering an upper-body injury against the Chicago Wolves a week ago. Robinson had been a healthy scratch since Sissons’ return and did not play these last two games.

This season Robinson has been on fire when he takes to the ice. For the Cyclones at the ECHL level he had 8 points (4 goals, 4 assists) in 6 games. For the Admirals he produced 4 points (3 goals, 1 assist) in 5 games – including scoring points in his first 4 games straight. I get the impression this move is acted similarly to Sissons move down from Nashville to Milwaukee. It’s not a matter of performance that is dictating the move. It’s simply a matter of the numbers. The roster is forcing him out of game action. It’s far better to see him playing at a lower tier league than sitting out of games and only practicing. Keep the motor running and be ready when the chance to return is available. Same can be said of Sissons for his hard work in Nashville. Same can be said for Robinson for his efforts in Milwaukee.

The Cyclones are currently leading the Midwest Division in the ECHL’s Western Conference standings with a record of 9-3-1-1 (20 points). They’ve been outstanding this season and their goal differential speaks for itself: +14 (42 goals forced, 28 goals allowed). Expect that margin to grow now that Robinson is heading back ahead of tonight’s game in Cincinnati as they take on the Fort Wayne Komets.

  1. Ryan: It’s an interesting dilemma isn’t it? Normally you’d feel a guy like Devane sits out because he is more of an enforcer-like player but his game lately with Girard has been really great. Coach talked briefly about those two last night. I wonder if this means a guy like Görtz is at risk of a healthy scratch or ECHL stint… but, as you said, it’s not an easy decision.

  2. I think we all saw this kind of potential for this team, even as early as last year. With a full roster at his disposal, Coach Evason has some tough choices to make. If Milwaukee can get Moses going after he returns from injury, the Admirals will really be a scary, deep team offensively.
