What Robbie Moore lacked in size, he made up for in quickness and agility when playing goal. He played Junior B with his hometown Sarnia Steeplejacks in 1971-72 before enrolling at the University of Michigan where he played four years in the NCAA. IN 1974 he was named to the NCAA West First All-Star Team. Immediately after finishing his career at Michigan, Moore played for a year with the University of Western Ontario.
Moore went undrafted by NHL teams, but he was taken in the 1974 WHA Amateur Draft, 187th overall by the New England Whalers although he never played in the league.
In 1978-79 Moore signed a contract with the Philadelphia Flyers and played in five games, spotting starters Bernie Parent and Wayne Stephenson. Although he posted an official record of 3-0-1 and was credited with two shutouts, he was unable to crack the lineup on a regular basis. Even with the eye injury which ended Parent's playing career, Pete Peeters was soon to come along to take over the main duties in goal with the Flyers. Moore played just one other game in the NHL and that came in the 1982-83 season when he stood between the pipes for the Washington Capitals. He played one last year of pro hockey with the Milwaukee Admirals in 1983-84 before retiring at the age of 29.
