This short list also includes his younger brother, Nicholas Robertson, a left winger for the storied Toronto Maple Leafs. Nicholas and Jason’s mother Mercedes is of Filipino descent.
Jason Robertson, or also known as “Robo,” went viral over the weekend when an impressive hat trick performance during a Dallas Stars win against the Anaheim Ducks catapulted him to the top goals scored spot in the NHL. He is also second in total points with 39 behind league leader Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers (43.) Roberston was also recently named the NHL's First Star of the Month for the month of November!
