The 1st overall pick from the 2019 MJHL Draft has signed a letter of intent for the 2021-22 season.

The Waywayseecappo Wolverines are happy to announce that prospect Luke Robson, 16, has signed with the club.

The club traded up in the draft that year to select the Carberry, Manitoba native.

Robson has spent the past few seasons playing for the Southwest Cougars of the Manitoba Under-18 Hockey League. Last year he had 22 points in 44 games as a 15-year-old. He had 10 points in the 8 games that were played this season, before the season was halted because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Robson is excited to have the opportunity to play for the Wolverines.

“The community is great, and the Wolverine organization has been great to me and has made me feel comfortable with the players and everyone that works there,” said Robson.

Robson says the players on the team have reached out to him as well, and he is quite familiar with some of his future teammates.

“I have some buddies on the team that I have been talking to, and it’s helped me understand the culture with the Wolverines.”

Robson has been at home for the past few months in lockdown but has been able to get workouts at home and has been skating on the outdoor rink in Carberry but is still hoping to finish the season with the Cougars this season.

“Hopefully everything starts opening up and we can get back to playing hockey.”
