Florida Panthers Executive VP & General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has agreed to terms with 23-year-old defenseman Colby Robak on a two-year contract. Given the nature of this deal, Panthers’ fans should expect to see Robak suit up for the Cats this season, mainly due to the fact that Robak can now no longer freely move between the NHL and AHL rosters without being put on waivers.
Last season, Robak played in 63 games for the San Antonio Rampage (AHL) and recorded 23 points (5G-18A-23P). In addition, Robak was also able to compete in 16 games for the Panthers last season, recording 1 point and 17 PIMs.
Although Robak still has much room for improvement defensively, he brings a powerful slap shot to the Panthers’ blue line – as evidenced in the video below.
