Nathan Robinson (born December 31, 1981) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing with Belfast Giants of the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) and he previously played for the Nottingham Panthers . He has previously played in the National Hockey League with the Detroit Red Wings and the Boston Bruins.

Playing career[edit]

Robinson played major junior hockey with the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League, where he won the OHL scoring title in the 2001-02 season. He was passed over in the NHL Entry Draft but signed with the Detroit Red Wings as a free agent on October 15, 2002. He made his NHL debut with the Red Wings during the 2003–04 NHL season, playing five games in all, going scoreless. After three years within the Red Wings organization on August 15, 2005, he signed with the Boston Bruins and over the course of the 2005–06 season played two more games in the NHL but again went pointless receiving very little playing time to prove his potential.

In 2006, he left for Europe signing with Adler Mannheim in Germany and then moved to Eisbären Berlin the next season becoming an elite player in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga. Prior to the 2009–10 season he signed a two-year contract to return with Adler Mannheim.[1] In his first season in his return to Mannheim, Robinson helped the Eagles become DEL Champions, marking his third successive DEL Championship.

During the 2010–11 season, in his final year of his deal with Mannheim, Robinson struggled to maintain his previous form and was subsequently released to join eventual silver medalists Espoo Blues of the Finnish SM-liiga, for the remainder of the season finishing on January 27, 2011.[2] In September 2011, he signed a contract with the Vienna Capitals of the Austrian Hockey League.

On September 5, 2012, he signed a one-year contract as a free agent in Germany with the Kölner Haie of the DEL.

On July 28, 2014, Robinson was announced as signing a short term deal with the Nottingham Panthers of the UK's EIHL who, for the first time in their history, are to compete in the Champions Hockey League in 2014/15
