Gilbert Plains Robak enjoying time with Stockton Heat

Gilbert Plains Colby Robak has made his return to the American Hockey League as he is currently suiting up for the Stockton Heat.

Robak began his season at the Calgary Flames training camp but was sent down to the team's affiliate, that being the Heat.

"I've played this game for a while, and I know the business side of it," said Robak. "It's getting harder and harder to crack an NHL roster, but injuries happen and that comes with the sport, so hopefully down the road, I can make it back up to the NHL."

Robak notes keeping it simple, and playing his game will be huge for him if he wants to make it to the NHL.

This will be the second time Robak has had a stint in Stockton as he started his season with the Heat last year, before going to Utica for the bulk of the season.

"It's a great group of guys here," said Robak. 

So far, Robak has recorded one point in three games, for a Stockton team that is 2-1 early in the season.

"We're a good young team," said Robak. "We have a good mix of good young fast forwards, and skilled defencemen. If we play the style of hockey our coach wants us to play, we're hoping to have a deep postseason push."

Robak and the rest of the Heat continue their regular season on Wednesday when they hit the road to take on San Jose.
