The Sudbury Wolves were looking to add some offensive punch to its Ontario Hockey League lineup, and Simcoe’s Dylan Robinson looks to fill that void.

On Tuesday night, the Wolves acquired the 19-year-old defencemen and the Wolves third-round pick in the 2025 OHL Draft from the Windsor Spitfires in exchange for defenceman Nathan Ribau. 

“We just thought that was something our blueline doesn’t have right now, some of those elements he’s bringing as a package, and felt it was something we’d definitely like to add, and the reports we got out of his experience in Los Angeles were outstanding,” Wolves general manager Rob Papineau told the Sudbury Star. “I looked at our group and we got into a conversation, Bill (Bowler, Spitfires GM) and I, and Dylan’s name was one that popped up. I have always liked him, since his draft year.”

So far this season, the 6-foot-6 and 206 pounds Robinson is tied for third in team scoring with three assists in four games, which ties him for 13 th among league defencemen. 

Prior to the season, Robinson was invited to the Los Angeles Kings development camp.

Robinson, who is expected to make his Wolves debut against the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds on Wednesday, joins fellow Norfolk OHLer Landon McCallum in the lineup. So far the 18-year-old forward from Delhi has two assists in six games.
