Matthew Robertson's Player Profile

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - Nov. 7th: "He’s as steady as they come and is currently a better defender than point producer. The offensive side continues to evolve." Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 6th: "Robertson doesn’t have the stride that leaps out at you like when you watch Byram, but he makes up for it by matching his length with above-average puck skills for his size and man-on-man defending off the rush and the cycle that results in turnovers or forced dumps from talented forwards who are incapable of losing him or backing him off."

Cam Robinson - Dobber Prospects - Nov. 5th: "A smart defender who blends size and mobility ... Won’t blow you away with his offensive creativity, but makes intelligent plays and has a heavy shot from the point."

Steve Kournianos - The Draft Analyst - Nov. 5th: "Poised two-way defender who loves to carry the puck and take it deep. Robertson is the leader of Edmonton’s defense corps and is the option his teammates turn to when they’re under pressure."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - Oct. 2nd: "Has had to take some lumps by being overplayed early on in his career. All of the elements are in place to become a top four defenceman at the next level."

Craig Button TSN - Aug. 14th: "Excellent skater who can close defensively and take the puck into positions where the team gains advantages. Has a physical element to his game."
