Enfield’s Baillargeon Leaves Cushing, Headed to the USHL

As reported late last week on USHR.com, Enfield native Robbie Baillargeon has elected to forgo his final two years at Cushing Academy and join the Indiana Ice of the USHL. When asked about the latest addition to his Indiana team, head coach Kyle Wallack had this to say:

“Robbie is a very talented young man. I recruited him to Yale a few years back so we had a past relationship with the family. He’s a skilled center who sees the ice extremely well and can make plays. We’re excited to have him become a member for the Indiana Ice.”

Baillargeon posted a 30-34-64 line in 30 games for Cushing in the 2010-2011 season, earning him a spot on the 2011 NEPSIHA All-Star boy’s ice hockey team as a sophomore. He has already committed to Boston University for the fall of 2013.

Prior to attending Cushing Academy, Baillargeon played one season for the Enfield High School boy’s hockey team in 2008-2009, leading the team in goals (35) and finishing second in total points (60). He helped guide the Raiders to an appearance in the Connecticut Division 2 boy’s ice hockey finals where they eventually fell to Cheshire High School, 3-2. For his efforts, Baillargeon was voted First Team All-State by both the Hartford Courant and New Haven Register.
