Robson, Scarfo take weekly honours

Mat Robson hasn’t wasted a second getting up to speed since he’s been eligible to play at the University of Minnesota.

After leaving Clarkson University to come back to Junior hockey with the Penticton Vees, Robson knew he’d have to wait a bit longer to compete in the NCAA even after earning another college opportunity. NCAA regulations made it so Robson couldn’t suit up for the Golden Gophers for the first half of the season but since returning to the crease, he’s posted sparking numbers.

The Toronto native earned the Big 10 conference’s first star of the week after a shutout win against then-No. 1 ranked St. Cloud State. Robson made 34 saves for his first NCAA shutout and is now 2-1 on the season with a .964 save percentage and a 1.01 goals-against average. Robson was named the conference’s third star of the week just last week.

Not to be outdone this week is Powell River Kings alum Ryan Scarfo of Union College. The product of North Chelmsford, Mass. had two goals and two assists for the Dutchmen helping them to three of a possible four points in conference play. His play earned him the ECAC Hockey conference’s player of the week nod.

Scarfo had a goal and a helper on the winning tally in a 4-1 win at Dartmouth and followed that with another goal and a helper in a 4-3 overtime loss at Harvard.

The 6-foot, 190-pound senior now leads Union with 12 goals and 22 points on the season.
