Cody Ceci compared Nick Robertson to an insect on Wednesday.

The Maple Leafs defenceman meant it in the nicest way.

“Since he has come in, he has been a little waterbug out there,” Ceci said of Robertson. “He has been flying around, he has a good shot, it’s the first real look I have had at him and he is doing great, really opening some eyes.”

Goaltender Jack Campbell has been among the Leafs observing Robertson since the initial stages of Phase 2 of the NHL’s Return to Play plan.

Though Campbell is effusive in his praise for everybody, he genuinely is impressed with Robertson’s mindset.

“We’re lucky to have him,” Campbell said. “He definitely looks like he is prepared and he is giving it his all to do everything he can to be here with us, and you can’t ask for any more of what he is doing.

“I think the fans will really get behind him. We would love to have him on our team, whether that’s right now or whenever he cracks it. He is a great talent and a nice kid and works his tail off, so we’re happy to have him.”
