I think it's because he likes country music or something to do with that. I remember when he first arrived here, Jim Jackson just said that Chico was his nickname. He never got a reason why.

I'm guessing that it's because Esche rhymes with Resch...as in Glenn 'Chico' Resch.

Considering most hockey nicknames are the first sylable + s or y [i.e. "Gags" "Prims" "Kappy"] nicknames like Rico, Styles, Rex, Bundy, and Fridge are actually quality.

I bought a game used and signed Jeremy Roenick synergy stick a couple months ago - and on the name plate it says "Styles 97" - pretty cool.

Ok, it's an answer. But that's a bit of a stretch isn't it? If that's where his name comes from, that's pretty lame.

Here is why Robbie's nickname is Chico.

When he first came to play in Pheonix,a teammate(the name seems to pass my mind) misread Robbie's stick as Reshe instead of Ecshe. So then his teammates began calling him Chico. Weird,I guess.

I still like Gags,though.
