Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Florent Robidoux
Florent Robidoux was born May 5, 1960 in Treheme, Manitoba. A graduate of the Western Hockey League's Portland Winter Hawks, Robidoux joined the Winter Hawks in 1978-79 after spending the previous year with the Estevean Bruins of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

While in Estevan with the Bruins, Robidoux played in eight regular season and 16 playoff games for the Western Canadian Junior Hockey League's New Westminster Bruins before joining the Winter Hawks. After a rookie season of 77 points, the Treheme, Manitoba native finished with 100 points in his second season, earning him a spot on the 1980 WHL All-Star Team.

The Chicago Black Hawks signed Florent Robidoux as a free agent early into the 1979-80 Western Hockey League season before making his NHL debut during the 1980-81 season.

Robidoux split his time with Chicago and the team's American Hockey League affiliate in New Brunswick during his rookie campaign, while managing to score first career NHL goal. The 1981-82 season was a set back for Robidoux as he played in only four games with the Black Hawks, spending the majority of his season in New Brunswick. Although he was unable to assure a roster spot with the Black Hawks, Robidoux was a key player in New Brunswick's 1982 Calder Cup victory.

Following a car accident in the off season, Florent Robidoux missed the entire 1982-83 season recovering from the injuries he had suffered. Even though he missed the entire 1982-83 season, Robidoux was determined to return to the Black Hawks line up.

Robidoux played in eight games with Chicago during the 1983-84 season, while spending the majority of the year with the Springfield Indians of the AHL before joining the International Hockey League's Milwaukee Admirals for the 1984-85 season.

After being released by the Black Hawks, the Philadelphia Flyers signed Florent Robidoux as a free agent in October of 1985 and assigned him to their AHL affiliate team in Hershey. In 47 games with the Hershey Bears, Robidoux managed only six goals and three assists for nine points and ended his career after returning to Milwaukee of the IHL in 1986-87.

In 52 career NHL games, Florent Robidoux scored seven goals and added four assists for eleven points.
