Aug 21, 2013

The Islanders have signed young standout defenseman, Darcy Robinson to round out the defensive core. 

Robinson played last season for the Cincinnati Swords U16AAA team. He is a tall framed defenseman that shows great speed and agility on the ice. Despite being one of the younger players on the team as a 1997 birth year, he will be expected to make a difference straight away with his on ice awareness and vision.

According to Islanders head coach Brandon Contratto, "Darcy is a tall, young defensemen that has huge potential and will be one of the quicker defenseman in the league. He also has the added ability to fill in at forward in key situations with his playmaking ability and strong skating."

Robinson and the rest of the Islanders open training camp on the 28th with their first preseason games starting on the 29th
