Bobby Robins out ‘at least two weeks’ with knee injury

The absence of enforcer Bobby Robins at training camp the last two days was explained by coach Claude Julien [1] Thursday, with Julien sharing that Robins suffered a knee injury in Tuesday’s exhibition game against the Capitals and will miss “at least two weeks.”

Robins, 31, spent the last two seasons playing for Providence, where he has gotten in a whopping 59 fights. He was signed to a two-year, two-way contract in the offseason and could eventually take on a role similar to Shawn Thornton [2]‘s once Thornton calls it a career. Thornton is in the final year of his contract but figures to play another season or two after that.
