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.
2013-14: Baillargeon led Boston University in scoring as a freshman. Tied with Danny O’Regan for the team lead in goals (10), he had 17 assists and was -3 with 20 penalty minutes in 35 games. The Terriers finished ninth in Hockey East and lost to Notre Dame in a first-round playoff game.
2014-15: Baillargeon skated in 30 of 41 games for NCAA runner-up Boston University in his sophomore season. Slowed by a case of mononucleosis early in the year and seeing a reduced role with the emergence of freshman Jack Eichel (Buffalo), he scored 3 goals with 13 assists and was +3 with 14 penalty minutes. The Terriers dominated college hockey much of the year, capturing the Hockey East regular season and playoff titles. Boston University won eight straight games to reach the Frozen Four championship game before falling to Hockey East rival Providence, 4-3.
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.
Baillargeon enters his junior season at Boston University in 2015-16. With Jack Eichel turning pro the Terriers will look to Baillargeon and three highly touted freshman to provide offense. Boston University should once again be one of the better teams in college hockey.
