Glasgow Clan are delighted to announce the signing of Canadian defenceman Sean Robertson from French Ligue Magnus outfit Diables Rouges de Briançon.
The 28-year-old from British Columbia joins the Clan in his first move to the EIHL after spending the previous two seasons in France.
Previous to that, Sean iced for the Utah Grizzlies, Reading Royals and Florida Everblades of the ECHL.
He also spent four seasons in the NCAA / USports leagues with Merrimack College and the University of Guelph.
A graduate of the Victoria Grizzlies of the BCHL, Sean skated alongside former and current Clan players Lee Baldwin, Mike Hammond and Jordan Haywood not to mention current NHL stars Tyler Bozak and Jamie Benn.
At 6’1′ and 194 lbs (185 cm / 88 kg) he brings size to a defence core who are short on numbers after the long term loss of Jordan Haywood to injury.
Clan head coach Zack Fitzgerald is delighted to be able to add another defenceman to his line-up:
“Robertson is a defense-first type defenceman. He takes pride in defending the net, blocking shots and doing what it takes for the team.” commented Fitzgerald.
“He will bring a shutdown element to the back end, move the puck up ice quickly, add character to our room and he is hungry.
“He comes with great references and has even played with one of our own in Jordan Heywood.
“He is a positive voice in the room. He is looking for the right opportunity and wants to help us through this 15 game battle we have to solidify our playoff goals.
“I look forward to working with and welcoming Sean to Glasgow.”
Sean will wear #22 during his time with the Clan and has arrived in Glasgow ahead of this weekend.
Sean is expected to make his debut THIS SATURDAY.
