Brandon Robinson Autograph Card

Brandon Robinson was an OHL first-rounder when the Brampton Battalion selected him prior to the 2011-12 season, and the fact that he played in the league for five full seasons is a testament that he knows how to play hockey, but also that he failed to meet expectations in the sense that not only was he never drafted by an NHL team, but that he also failed to secure a professional roster spot in the ECHL at 20 or 21 years old, though he did attend a Detroit Red Wings rookie camp.

In two and a half years with the Battalion and the same length of time with the Kitchener Rangers, Robinson never was a point-per-game player, despite playing a hard-hitting game with a good shot, and improving his skating nearly every year. His best season in Juniors was in 2014-15, when he scored 25 goals with 29 assists for 54 points in 62 games.

This season, he's got 9 goals and 5 assists for 14 points in 21 games so far with the Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawks.

Here he is wearing the North Bay Battalion's (the team moved prior to his third season) white uniform, on card #A-BR1 from In the Game's 2013-14 Draft Series set and Draft Prospects sub-set:
He signed it on-card in black sharpie.
