Providence Profiles: Bobby Robins

31-year-old Bobby Robins is no stranger to playing hockey as he has played 13 seasons between NCAA, AHL, ECHL, and overseas league. Currently he is in his first full season playing for the Providence Bruins. He was signed by the P-Bruins back in February. In 31 games thus far, Robins has 2 goals, 1 assist, and 165 penalty minutes. Last season he was the penalty minute leader and this season he’s on his way to keeping that title.

Before signing to minor leagues, Robins was a part of the University of Massachusetts Lowell River Hawks for four years, and served as captain his senior year. After graduating, he signed with the Binghamton Senators of the AHL.

And from there, Robins has played right wing for 10 other teams, including Providence.

Robins is gutsy on the ice, and always ready to step up and fight.
This clip makes a sense as to why Robins spends a lot of time in the penalty box:

Robins is a fighter no if, ands, or buts about it.

Besides playing hockey, like myself and my co-writers, Robins is a blogger. You can check out his blog here. His blog is an inspiration for anyone with a dream, as cheesy as that may sound. Robins writes about his journey and his end goal of making it to the NHL and having a goal is something we can all relate too.

Robins also has a twitter, and you can follow that here.
