Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in blue are those with the Rockies.
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Even when he arrived in Denver, the right third of the famed French Connection has clearly seen better days. Although
his season and a half with the Rockies was a decent tenure.

But the Rockies was quickly becoming a player's purgatory. Robert even considered retirement rather than join the last-
place team he was just traded to. Then-coach Don Cherry persuaded Robert to come and he'll even provide some
players with a winning attitude.

He was one of the loudest to protest Cherry's firing midway through the 80-81 season. So he was then traded to the
Maple Leafs to finish his career.

At one time, he acted as the president of the NHL Alumni Association.
Entry Draft: None
