June 2017 – After his freshman year at Boston University it looked like Ottawa might have bagged a steal with their fifth-round-pick in 2012 as he proceeded to put up 27 points in 35 games for the Terriers, leading the team in scoring. But that was a good as it got for Baillargeon as he saw his role diminish and point totals dip to 16 and 12 in the following two seasons, culminating in a transfer to Arizona State University for the 2016-17 season where he joined fellow Senators prospect Joel Daccord. He had a bit of a resurgence leading the Sun Devils in scoring with 21 points in 28 contests but is unlikely to earn an NHL contract. Brad Phillips
May 31st 2015 – Robbie has taken his time becoming the player he is today. After being drafted in 2012, Baillargeon spent a year in the USHL split between Indiana and Omaha before going to Boston University. In his first year at Boston University, Baillargeon led the team in scoring posting 27 points in 35 games and was tied for the team lead in goals with 10. He had an off-season off ankle surgery for a nagging injury and missed games this year with a shoulder injury playing in only 30 of the teams 41 games. With Jach Eichel and a few other more offensive minded players joining the Terriers Baillargeon’s offensive production dropped only putting up three goals and 16 points. However, Baillargeon improved when it comes to defensive play, being the team’s go-to penalty killer typically playing the entire penalty kill and as the team’s go-to faceoff guy. Baillargeon was also used on the 2nd powerplay unit from time to time but his shoulder injury was obvious at times as the twenty-year-old avoided shooting when while in prime opportunities. Still has two years of NCAA eligibility before the Senators need to make a decision. Benjamin Gallant
