Due to his size and skating prowess, Robertson stands out on the ice. He exhibits beautiful crossovers and backwards skating and he shows elite escapability. He’s borderline impossible to strip of the puck once he has possession due to his ability to spin and protect it. His agility also allows him to stick with even the shiftiest forwards as he can quickly pin and overpower them with ease. Doesn’t play rough or mean, but still quite physical in how he ties up and boxes out opponents defensively. He shows top tier awareness and is strong at eliminating attack angles with good lane management techniques and his ability to adjust on the fly. A highly-mobile and elite thinker who excels under pressure, he picks his spots well to make an impact with the puck. His sense and poise yield many opportunities as he is deceptive in his delivery. He’s capable eluding defenders with quickness and his ability to change angles and generate passing or shot lanes. His passes in zone exits and in transition are consistently hard and tape-to-tape. He is quick and precise in his puck delivery and he has an elite wrist shot that may need some work with the release, but is on point and generates follow-up chances if he doesn’t beat goalies clean. Overall, he is a coach’s dream and a prospect with enormous potential.
