The trade is pending league approval.
Robinson (6’1”, 185 lbs., 10/20/1997) made his NLL debut with the Rush in 2019-20 after Saskatchewan selected him in the first round (9th overall) of the 2019 NLL Entry Draft.

A native of Pickering, Ontario, Robinson played three seasons of collegiate lacrosse before turning pro. In 2016, Robinson was named to the SSC All-Freshman team after he recorded 15 points (12+3) in 13 games for Saint Leo University. He then played two seasons (2018 and 2019) for Robert Morris University, where he scored one goal in 11 contests.
