Eric Robinson (born June 14, 1995) is an American professional ice hockey winger currently playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Raised in Bellmawr, New Jersey, Robinson played prep hockey at Gloucester Catholic High School, graduating in 2013.[1]

Robinson was selected by the United States Hockey League (USHL)'s Dubuque Fighting Saints in the third round, 44th overall, in the 2013 USHL Entry Draft after his final Midget year. He played the 2013–14 season in the USHL before playing collegiate hockey with Princeton University of the ECAC conference.

Robinson's development improved each year with the Tigers ice hockey team, increasing his points totals and role within the team. In his senior season in 2017–18, Robinson was selected as team captain. He recorded a career-high 17 goals and 31 points in 36 games while helping Princeton surprise everyone in winning the ECAC playoff tournament and being crowded 2017–18 champions, also earning a trip to the NCAA tournament.

Having been unselected in any NHL Entry Draft, Robinson attracted considerable NHL interest and signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets on March 27, 2018.[2] With the intention to immediately burn a year off his contract, Robinson was added to the Blue Jackets' roster and made his NHL debut in the final game of the 2017–18 regular season, a 4–2 defeat to the Nashville Predators on April 7, 2018.[3]

In the 2019–20 season, on November 12, 2019, Robinson scored his first NHL career goal with the Blue Jackets against the Montreal Canadiens.

Personal[edit | edit source]

Robinson's brother, Buddy, is also a professional ice hockey player who has played with the Ottawa Senators in the NHL.[4] Buddy is currently with the Calgary Flames organization.
