Robin Burns

Robin Burns played 190 NHL games in the 1970s. He was a decent goal scorer whose career statistics would have been better if his time was spent with better teams.

He was a solid grinder for three years in junior then played two seasons in the CHL with the Houston Apollos. After spending a year with the Montreal Voyageurs of the AHL, Burns was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins by the Montreal Canadiens.

Burns played sparingly for the Pens during his three years with their organization. Between 1971 and 1974 Burns spent the majority of his playing days patrolling the left wing for the Hershey Bears. In 1974, Burns was the top playoff scorer and led the Bears to the Calder Cup. Burns played 178 games for the Bears registering 146 points.

Burns was the co-founder of ITECH hockey over 20 years ago and is part owner of Mission ITECH hockey company.
