He always led by example on and off ice and we are looking forward to him continuing his work ethic in the area of marketing and coaching. He possesses leadership skills and will have a rapport with the community. He will be a great fit with Coach Howden.”

He is currently completing his degree in Business Administration and Marketing receiving he an award for academic excellence.
His former Minot head coach Wade Regier had high praise and wished him the best of luck in the future, “Robby has been a part of one of the greatest recruiting classes in our programs history. Robby’s work ethic and dedication to the game allowed him to develop into one of the best penalty killer and defensive players in the country. Off the ice, Robby was a leader in every sense of the word. This included receiving the Caley Cox Memorial award his senior season. This award, highest honour within our program, showed his dedication to the team and to the community. We are proud of everything he has accomplished and look forward to him bringing these qualities to the Neepawa Natives hockey team.”
