RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Robak was an excellent playmaker over the course of four seasons with the Brandon Wheat Kings, his junior team. He totaled 143 helpers and improved his scoring in each successive year. He will take the next step in his development in 2010-11 by going pro, playing for the Rochester Americans, an AHL affiliate of the Panthers.
A second-rounder in 2008, Robak could either head back to juniors or turn pro and learn the AHL game. He's got some size and has shown the ability to put up numbers in the WHL, but he's a few years off from the NHL.
Robak was the Panthers' second-round pick in the 2008 draft. A developing two-way defenseman, Robak will hone his craft in juniors for at least another year.
