Canes reacquire Robertson from Blackhawks

The Carolina Hurricanes announced Monday they have reacquired defenseman Dennis Robertson from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for goaltender Drew MacIntyre.

Robertson, 24, is in his second full professional season, notching five points in 37 games with Chicago’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs.

Robertson was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the sixth round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft but was acquired by Carolina on Jan. 1, 2014, along with John-Michael Liles, in exchange for Tim Gleason. He signed an entry-level contract with the Hurricanes after completing a four-year collegiate career at Brown in 2014, and totaled 17 points and 70 penalty minutes in his first professional season with the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers in 2014-15.

The Hurricanes traded Robertson to Chicago on Sept. 11, 2015, along with Jake Massie and a fifth-round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft in exchange for Kris Versteeg, Joakim Nordstrom and a third-round pick in 2017.
