The Kitmart Dundee Stars are delighted to confirm the signing of Scottish forward, Caly Robertson for the 2021-2022 Elite League campaign.

The Kirkcaldy-born forward has 85 games of Elite League experience across two years with Edinburgh Capitals and Fife Flyers and has represented Scotland and Great Britain on 51 occasions, scoring 32 points.

The 20-year-old has not played since the 2019-2020 season but split his last campaign across three clubs before earning a call-up to the GB U20’s for the World Junior Championships.

Caly made 41 appearances in the National Ice Hockey League during his last season, beginning the year by icing 17 times with Milton Keynes Lightning before moving to Bracknell Bees for 11 matches.

He rounded of the campaign with Leeds Chief and made 13 appearances for the Chiefs, scoring seven points, which gave him a season total of 25 (14G, 11A).

Robertson is also not the first member of his family to play for the Stars, as he follows in his father Iain’s footsteps and his dad was a Star between 2007 and 2010, during the club’s time in the Northern League.

The 5-foot-9-inch, attacker, has already won two international medals, as he was a Gold Medallist in 2018 with the GB U18’s in Division 2A at the U18 World Junior Championships.

The Scot won his second medal in 2020, as he picked up silver at the U20 WJC tournament.

In his career so far, Robertson has featured in 266 matches, scored 159 goals, assisted 144 times, and has collected 101 penalty minutes.

Stars General Manager and Head Coach, Omar Pacha was delighted to add Caly to his squad for this season and he said: “Caly has a lot of potential, he is a player that as played for the Under 20’s and when we played against the Edinburgh Capitals a few years ago, he always played really well against us.

“He is a player I am looking forward to working with and seeing where we can take his game to the next level.

“With Caly, we wanted to add a bit of depth to our line-up because of everything that is still going on in the world with COVID.

“So, when his name came up, I just thought it was a great opportunity to get a young Brit, who is hungry to play in the Elite League.

“We wanted to make sure that he would be coming to practice with us and I think he has a massive amount of potential to his game and he is a player that I believe can help us massively.

“Having an extra body will also make things a lot more competitive for spots and not just in practice, but it also allows us to have the appropriate numbers for the situation that is going on right now with COVID.”

Pacha continued: “He gives us those options and in the past, we have had guys miss a lot of games through injury and we did not have someone to step into the line-up.

“So, Caly gives us that depth in the forward group and I want him to compete for a spot everyday and once he is practicing with us every day and knows the systems inside and out, then it will be an easier transition to put him into the line-up.”
