I was playing in a hockey tournament when I was 12. My dad made me stay after one of my games because he said we had to stay and watch this 14 year old play. Within the first shift, this player went end to end, put the puck through the defenseman’s legs and ripped a shot top shelf over the glove. I was in awe. The player was Rob Schremp.
I continued to follow his career and watched endless clips of him on YouTube. The “shoot to thrill” London Knights highlight video was one, my Knights teammates and I, enjoyed the most. It got us excited about the game.
He played the game the way I always thought it should be played. Skilled, productive, entertaining, flare for the dramatics, and a lot of showtime.
Not only did he have these abilities but he thought the game at the highest level as well. And after discussing the game with him, he still sees things on the ice no one else does. Anyone would be lucky enough to work with Robbie.
