Thanks to a 5-1 win on home ice at the American Airlines Center over the Nashville Predators on Monday night, April 3, the Dallas Stars clinched a spot in this year’s Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Stars have had a great season this year. As of this writing (Wednesday, April 3), they are in a three-way tie for first place in the Central Division with the Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche with a 42-21-14 record and 98 points.

One player that has gotten the job done this season for the Stars is 23-year-old Jason Robertson. In his third year in the league, Robertson has done it all for the Stars this year.

For starters, he is the team’s offensive catalyst. He currently leads the team in goals (43), assists (58), points (101), power-play points (37), game-winning goals (seven), and shots (297).

Robertson is the first Star to eclipse 100 points since the organization moved from Minnesota in 1993. After the game, Robertson expressed to Chuck Cariton of The Dallas Morning News how great it was to hit the mark for this franchise.

“It’s special,” Robertson said. “I’m not sure a lot of players have had that before. To be here, my third year, it means a lot. I’m just happy it shows how much of an impact it can have on this fan base, this community, this team, and this city.”

Stars head coach Pete DeBoer also acknowledged how great it was for Robertson to hit the 1oo-point mark this season.

“To think of all the great players who played for the Dallas Stars, no one has done it,” DeBoer said. “It’s a fantastic accomplishment.”

Whenever Robertson is on the ice, he is a threat to score. He is someone who can stickhandle the puck in tight areas, make great passes and is also someone that has a terrific shot.

Secondly, he also plays well at both ends of the ice. He is second on the team in +/- as he is a +33 this season.

This shows that not only is Robertson an elite offensive talent, but he is also someone that is responsible in his own end. He knows that besides scoring goals and producing consistently, he needs to take care of the other details of the game and make sure that he is doing his job to help prevent goals from going in on his team.

Lastly, as mentioned earlier in this article, he knows how to come through when his team needs him the most. He has seven game-winning goals this season, and whenever the Stars need a big goal, the puck seems to find his stick.

It will be great for both Stars and hockey fans alike to see what Robertson does under the bright lights of the playoffs.
