In four games last week, Robertson racked up six goals and eight points.
His two goals in three of the four games allowed the Dallas Stars to get a point against Colorado, led the charge for a dramatic 6-4 comeback vs Chicago, and brought the Stars back to even late against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. The second goal on Saturday also boosted him into the league's top spot with 18 goals overall.
Robertson is currently riding a 15-game point streak after tallying an assist in the 41 loss at Colorado on Saturday. That's good enough for the Dallas Stars record and has him just five games back of Brian Bellows for the franchise record (20).
Robertson has not gone a game without recording a point since Oct. 25 against the Boston Bruins. That's wild stuff.

Robertson leads the Dallas Stars with 18 goals and 35 points and sits only one point behind Connor McDavid for the NHL lead in points.
Robertson was also named the First Star of the week at the start of November. Josh Morrissey (Winnipeg: 3G, 4A) and Ilya Sorokin (NYI: 3-0-0) round out the Three Stars.
