Brett Robinson, who is part of Steelheads playoff history, signed with Idaho and was in the lineup for Thursday night's road game against the San Francisco Bulls. Robinson, 27, in his fourth professional season, has played this year with Greenville (ECHL) and Quad City (CHL). His promotion back to the ECHL is part of a nationwide flurry of roster shuffles triggered by the end of the NHL lockout. Robinson scored the game-winning goal for the Cincinnati Cyclones in the decisive fifth game of the 2010 Kelly Cup Finals against the Steelheads. He scored 15 goals during the regular season in 2009-10 as a rookie, and added nine more in the postseason. He produced 20 goals during the 2011-12 season with Greenville. He has played 147 games in the ECHL and scored 89 total points.
On Thursday, Tyler Beskorowany stopped 29-of-30 shots, including a pair of late flurries, as Idaho knocked off the Bulls 2-1 in San Francisco. David deKastrozza and Tristan King scored for Idaho.
With the win, Idaho (23-7-5) has points in seven straight games, going 5-0-2 in that stretch. The Steelheads play at Bakersfield on Friday and Saturday.
