Defenseman Moves Up to Top Junior League in United States.
On Monday morning, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights traded defenseman Luke Robinson to the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the United States Hockey League.
Robinson, 18, played in 92 regular season games with the Knights over parts of three seasons. Additionally, the blue liner skated in nine playoff games last season, helping Wilkes-Barre reach the Robertson Cup Finals. In 36 games with the grey and blue this year, Robinson tallied seven assists.
The Colorado native joins a Fighting Saints team sitting third in their conference, and will look to help Dubuque in their quest of reaching the Clark Cup Playoffs. On behalf of the entire Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights organization, we would like to thank Luke for his services over the past three years, and wish him nothing but the best of luck in the USHL.
