It looks like Bobby Robins hockey season is about to get started.

The AHL enforcer that made a very positive impression at the start of training camp before going down with a knee injury has been cleared to start playing again. With that Robins was removed from his injured non-roster player designation, and waived for purpose of an assignment to the AHL in Providence.

Robins cleared waivers at noon on Friday, and will report immediately to the P-Bruins for his customary role as their enforcer and top energy forward.

Robins had an assist in his only preseason appearance against the Washington Capitals in Baltimore, and also picked up a five minute major for fighting Dane Byers during the exhibition game. He also injured the knee late in the game against the Capitals, and missed the rest of his first NHL preseason with the Bruins.
