History

2009-10: Robbie Baillargeon scored 15 goals with 30 assists as a freshman at Cushing Academy in Massachusetts. He was selected by the Indiana Ice in the 17th round (250th overall) of the 2010 USHL Entry Draft.

2010-11: Baillargeon had an outstanding sophomore season for Cushing Academy. In 30 games he scored 30 goals with 34 assists. He committed to playing college hockey at Boston University in 2013-14.

2011-12: Baillargeon skated for the Indiana Ice in the USHL rather than returning to Cushing for his junior year. Baillargeon was the third-leading scorer for the Ice, finishing with 14 goals and 34 assists, and was minus-one with 36 penalty minutes in 54 games. In six playoff games he scored 4 goals with 2 assists and was plus-seven with 2 penalty minutes. Indiana swept Dubuque but were then swept by defending champ Green Bay in the East Conference finals. Baillargeon was invited to the NHL Draft Combine and ranked 50th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft.

2012-13: Baillargeon began his second USHL season with Indiana before a mid-season trade to the Omaha Lancers and represented the USA in the 2012 U19 World Junior A Challenge. In 55 games between the two teams he scored 18 goals with 23 assists and was -15 with 48 penalty minutes. The Lancers missed the USHL playoffs after finishing fifth in the Western Conference. Baillargeon had no points and 4 penalty minutes in four games at the WJAC.

 

Talent Analysis

Baillargeon is an agitating forward with decent size and some offensive ability.  He plays with a fair amount of energy and is not shy about getting in the face of the opposition.  Baillargeon handles the puck well and has an effective shot, but his strength on offense lies mostly in his playmaking ability.  His defensive play is adequate, but could use some improvement if his ultimate role is more as a two-way forward.

 

Future

Baillargeon has begun his college career at Boston University in the fall of 2013.

 

Many Ottawa Senators prospects to take next step developmentally in 2013-14

The Ottawa Senators organization is no longer a wasteland for goaltending prospects. Robin Lehner, Chris Driedger, and Marcus Hogberg highlight a deep goalie prospect list with high expectations attached. Sweden remains the European melting pot for Senators prospects, and as usual a crop of under-the-radar NCAA prospects are making a splash.

The Ottawa Senators pipeline features plenty of homegrown talent, including Kanata's Mark Borowiecki, and nearby Hull's Jean-Gabriel Pageau. Cody Ceci and Shane Prince both played in the Senators' backyard for the Ottawa 67's.

Robbie Baillargeon is hockey’s “Mystery Man”. If he were a president, he would be Woodrow Wilson. If he were the subject of a novel, Kristen Ashley would write it. If he were a superhero, he would team up with Mr. Furious, The Shoveler and The Blue Raja.

There is a new rivalry brewing in Nebraska.

No, it is not the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Iowa Hawkeyes, or the UNO Mavericks and the North Dakota Fighting Sioux. Rather, it is between the Omaha Lancers and the Lincoln Stars of the USHL.

The Ottawa Senators have nine prospects presently at the junior level led by former first round picks Cody Ceci, Stefan Noesen, and Matt Puempel. The organization addressed its weak goaltending depth in the 2012 entry draft by selecting Chris Driedger of the WHL and Francois Brassard of the QMJHL, both of whom are having strong seasons. The lone junior prospect Ottawa has outside of Canadain major junior is Robbie Baillargeon of the USHL.
