Default Who is Elijah Roberts?

He's a lad the IceDogs just paid a not-insignificant price to acquire from the Kitchener Rangers. A 2nd-rd pick and a couple of 3rds. Having said that I think the ice dogs did a great job in bringing in some talent on the blue line that will significantly upgrade their depth on D. A mobile, puck-moving defenceman is what the Dogs have needed for a long, long time. Any size you can get in addition to that package is a nice bonus
Welcome to the Niagara IceDogs, Elijah, we're thrilled to have you!

Having watched several Kitchener Rangers games live and on the telly, the kid is pretty good on the offensive zone.

Just saying, head turner. Not sure what he is like in the dressing room.

On twitter I just asked one of the reporters from the Record to describe Roberts' game.

He said:

"extremely fast, one of speediest guys in league, can join rush"

Interesting ...

I'm liking what I'm hearing... not saying I've got an Elijah Roberts sweater on order just yet(besides, it would be a Josh Ho-Sang sweater anyway), but it's good stuff so far!

NOVEMBER 27, 2015
Breakout Star of the Month: Elijah Roberts
By Nicholas Carafa


Defenceman Elijah Roberts is a game-breaker. Roberts has relied on his smooth skating, awareness and offensive instincts to excel in a position often dominated by hulking six-foot machines.

Former NHLer Scott Walker was head coach of Canada White and had the opportunity to witness first-hand what Roberts brings to the table. “He was a treat to watch,” Walker recalled to Sportsnet. “He can skate, he’s never loses a battle. He’s a new-age hockey defenceman. He’s a warrior, too. You look in the room when you’re talking to the team and he’s right on the edge of his seat; he’s a gamer - those are the kind of guys you want to go to battle with.”

Roberts has helped the Rangers win five of seven games since returning from the World Under-17 tournament, collecting three points – including his first OHL goal on Nov. 15 against the Erie Otters – and a plus-6 rating in that span.

Roberts is the second Rangers player to be named Breakout Star of the Week. Adam Mascherin took home the honour in the first edition on Oct. 30.
