Calum Robertson playing for Great Britain

Calum Robertson scored Edinburgh Capitals only goal in their challenge clash with University of Manitoba Bisons in midweek, the teenager sending the puck home when the chance arrived ten minutes into his debut.

He is, however, continuing his ice hockey education by training and continuing to play with the club’s Scottish National League side as well as the senior side.

Capitals’ head coach, Dmitri Khristich, said the goal showed that the Fife-born young player was organised.

And Robertson knows he has a lot to learn about the world’s fastest team sport.

The former Kirkcaldy Kestrels forward, who played for the Great Britain under-18 side in the World Championships in Korea earlier this year, could have a busy weekend ahead.

He is pencilled in for a junior game on Saturday and Capitals host Dundee Stars in a pre-season challenge on Sunday (face-off 6pm).

Meanwhile, Khristich is still putting his hand-picked squad under the microscope in training.

And the squad face a gym session on Saturday to boost their fitness ahead of the visit of Dundee.

He said: “We’re working had in training, doing drills and we’re moving forward every day.”
