Looking at his new players in Dobson and Robbie, both just completed their first full year in the SJHL as they enter their 20 year old season. On the blueline, Robbie had 4 assists in 51 games to go along with 41 penalty minutes, while Dobson had 24 points in 54 outings climbing the lineup as a top 6 forward.
