It’s been a good few weeks for Nick Robertson. He’s received OHL and CHL Sportsman of the Year honours. He’s been assured a spot on the Leafs training camp roster, and now this…
He led the league in goals with 55 before the season was cut short. He was named an OHL First All-Star team and @nickrob2001 is also the recipient of the Petes Executive Trophy which is awarded to the most valuable player voted on by the team. #GoPetesGo // #LeafsForever pic.twitter.com/bIWg1xY0wv

That’s right. Two, count him two more things to add to Nick Robertson’s list of achievements.
The 1st Team All-Star honours is probably one that we should have expected, and while the Petes MVP honour might also be one that seems a tad obvious, the fact that it’s his peers recognizing him drives a pleasant narrative about character in addition to talent. Of course this means that Semyon Der Arguchintsev didn’t win Team MVP honours, but we’ll just assume he was the runner up.
Assuming this trend continues, we’ll be seeing the Conn Smythe Trophy awarded to Nick Robertson this fall.
