Charles James "Buddy" Robinson III[1] (born September 30, 1991) is an American professional ice hockey forward currently playing with the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Raised in Bellmawr, New Jersey, Robinson attended Gloucester Catholic High School.[2] Robinson played two seasons of collegiate hockey with Lake Superior State University of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association.

Undrafted, he was signed by the Senators to a three-year entry level contract on March 25, 2013.[3]

While playing mostly in the AHL with the Senators affiliate, the Binghamton Senators, Robinson did play three games with the NHL Ottawa Senators in April 2016 and scored his first NHL goal in a 3–1 win over the Florida Panthers.[4] He added an assist a game later and finished with 1 goal, 1 assist, +2 in those three games.

On June 23, 2016, the Senators re-signed Robinson to a one-year, two-way deal.[5] In the following 2016–17 season, Robinson was assigned and returned to the Binghamton Senators to start the year. He appeared in a further 4 scoreless games with Ottawa, before he was traded to the San Jose Sharks, along with Zack Stortini and a 7th round draft pick in the 2017 draft, in exchange for Tommy Wingels on January 24, 2016. He was immediately assigned to AHL affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda.[6]

On July 1, 2017, Robinson signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Winnipeg Jets.[7] In the 2017–18 season, Robinson played 74 games with the Jets' AHL affiliate, the Manitoba Moose, finishing third in scoring with 25 goals and 28 assists for 53 points.

Having concluded his contract with the Jets, Robinson left as a free agent to sign a two-year, two-way contract with the Calgary Flames on July 2, 2018.[8]

Robinson returned to the NHL with the Flames on January 28, 2020 in Calgary against the St. Louis Blues.[9]
