Minot, ND – As the 2016/17 NAHL season draws near we are giving Tauros fans a chance to meet all of the new members of the club as well as learn a little more about the returning Tauros. We will play 20 questions with a different Tauro every day from now until the NAHL Showcase going in number order, today we meet #5 Robby McClellan.
The Palos Cerdes, CA, native McClellan is heading into his final season of junior hockey. In his first junior season McClellan posted 3 goals and 11 assists for the Estevan Bruins of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL). At 5’10” and 154 lbs. McClellan is not the biggest defenseman but he only took 8 minutes of penalties in 58 games for the Bruins last season showing that he plays a disciplined defensive game.
From the Coaches’ Office: Robby played Junior A in Canada last season, so he will join our team as somewhat of a veteran player. He has a presence about him, and we expect him to make an immediate impact on our back end. His compete level is very strong, and he shoots the puck well. Robby should also add veteran leadership to our group. – Marty Murray
