Dartmouth's Robinson Lost for Season
by Joshua Seguin/Staff Writer
HANOVER, N.H. Dartmouth, already struggling through a difficult start, received more bad news this week when it learned senior forward Eric Robinson will miss the remainder of the season with an upper body injury.
The injury was suffered in practice last Thursday, potentially a separated shoulder. Robinson will undergo the necessary medical procedures to alleviate the problem and expects to apply for a medical waiver that will allow him to play next season.
"We are a battling team," said Dartmouth coach Bob Gaudet after the team's 3-2 loss to Clarkson on Friday. "Robinson is out for the year and done. I am not making excuses, but when you have a guy on your team that you love and the guys on the team love him and hes a big part of the team. Now we know, he is a wonderful guy but we need to fill the void."
Robinson, a big power forward, was expected to play a key part in the Big Green's offense this season. He has appeared in 91 games for the Big Green over his career, with 55 points, on 26 goals and 29 assists.
Dartmouth is off to a 0-5 start in what it hoped to be a strong season.
