Robo Returns To The Lion’s Den


Edinburgh Capitals are delighted to announce the re-signing of forward Aaron Robertson for the 2024-25 SNL campaign.

The 26-year-old Kirkcaldy-born playmaker finished last season with 39 points from 42 games. This saw him hit the net 14 times and helping himself to 25 assists whilst mainly playing on the top line with Joel Gautschi and Chad Smith.

Robo comes from a hockey family and both his brother Caly and dad Iain have played here with the Capitals over the years. Aaron will be looking to contribute offensively once again this upcoming season as we look to pick up more silverware.

As a young kid, Aaron grew up as part of the Kirkcaldy junior system before moving to Edinburgh to attend University. In his last season as a junior he was playing with Murrayfield U20s as well as the Edinburgh Eagles University team, Capitals SNL, and the Capitals Elite League team. He would gain valuable experience training with the Elite squad with guys such as former NHLer Pavel Vorobyev and the highly impressive Canadian Mike Cazzola.

The following year Aaron became a member of the newly formed Murrayfield Racers. He would go on to win the SNL League title that season. In 2019-20 he signed with Dundee Comets and would finish top scorer for the team with 12 goals and 25 assists for 37 points. The pandemic then hit and after missing a season of hockey Aaron signed with his hometown club Kirkcaldy Kestrels. It was here he would once again win the SNL league title.

The next stop was a move back to the Capitals at the start of 2022-23. A strong Fife contingent as you all know arrived from the Kestrels and have been here since.

Aaron will be looking for another successful season here with the Capitals and had this to say on his return. “I’m looking forward to getting back on the ice with the boys and kicking off our 3rd season.

We had a fairly successful year last year and we’re looking to turn those second places in the league and Scottish Cup into two more trophies for the Caps faithful.

Looking at the roster we’re building for this season coming I think we are going to have every opportunity to do that. See you all soon.”

Head Coach Steven Lynch is delighted to have Aaron’s experience on the roster again. “Having Aaron back for another year is another important piece of the jigsaw for us. As I’ve said before, he can bring a dimension to the team that others sometimes can’t.

He has good vision on the ice and can make things happen in the offensive zone. He can be a good guy to have on the powerplay too which is always beneficial.

He’s another player entering his third year with us which further illustrates how players like playing here in front of the great Caps fans. We welcome Aaron back for another year and he will no doubt play his part in us achieving our goals.”

The team is building fast and the days are counting down. Stay tuned for more signing news as it happens.
