Robby Dee's College Career Ends

Kyle Bigos and the Merrimack Warriors eliminated Robby Dee and the Maine Black Bears last night in a 6-2 romp.  Dee was held scoreless while Bigos was nailed with a two minute Unsportsmanlike Conduct penalty.  Mike McMahon has outstanding coverage at Warrior Rink Rat.  Merrimack moves on to the Hockey East semi-finals for only the second time in school history and is a lock to make the NCAA tournament.

A look at the latest PairWise rankings shows Maine will not make the NCAA tournament and so ends the college career of Robby Dee.

A year after scoring 13 goals and collecting 12 assists in 33 games as a junior, Dee's senior year saw him score 13 goals and tally 22 assists for 35 points in 36 games.  His senior season production works out to an NHL Equivalent 12 goals and 21 assists and 33 points.  7 of Dee's 13 goals came on the power play he's been known primarily as a power play talent in his time at Maine.  He finished his career with 33 goals and 41 assists in 126 games. 

Dee has become known as a faceoff specialist, briefly flirting with 60% during his senior year before settling in at 55% for most of the year. 

When we spoke with Dee about his future and his relationship with the Oilers, they weren't keeping in close contact with Dee:

C&B:  Does Edmonton stay in touch with you?

Dee:  A little bit, not so much as of late, but I try not to worry about that so much. I just try to play my game. If they call me, I'll talk to them, which they did a little bit last year. I'm sure they're watching so I don't worry about it.

Scott doesn't believe the Oilers will offer an entry-level contract to Dee because they are approaching their 50 man limit (column at the left on the main page).  I believe his power play ability and faceoff prowess will enable him to sign a contract with NHL team and begin a career in the AHL.
