Playing career

Coming off a 1994 Memorial Cup championship with the Kamloops Blazers of the WHL, Baumgartner was chosen by the Washington Capitals in the first round, 10th overall of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. Upon being drafted, he returned to the WHL and joined future NHLers Darcy Tucker, Shane Doan and Jarome Iginla to capture a second consecutive Memorial Cup in 1995. Baumgartner was named to the Memorial Cup All-Star Team for the second consecutive year. En route to the CHL championship, Baumgartner was distinguished with the airBC Trophy as the WHL playoffs MVP after scoring 17 points in 21 games and at the season's end, he was also awarded the Bill Hunter Trophy as the league's best defenceman.

Baumgartner's NHL career got off to an uneven start due to a serious shoulder injury. After playing the majority of his tenure in Washington with the Capitals' American Hockey League affiliate, the Portland Pirates, he was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks on July 20, 2000, for Rémi Royer.[1] Baumgartner would continue to play in the AHL with Chicago's minor league affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals.

On July 11, 2002, he was signed as a free agent by the Vancouver Canucks.[1] After one season with the Canucks, he was placed on waivers and picked up by the Pittsburgh Penguins on October 3, 2003.[1] However, after just five games with the Penguins, he was placed on waivers again and reclaimed by Vancouver on November 1.[1] Playing with the Canucks' AHL affiliate, Baumgartner captained the Manitoba Moose in the lockout season of 2004–05 and scored an AHL career high, 39 points. As the Moose began play at the newly opened MTS Center in 2004–05, Baumgartner earned the distinction of scoring the first ever professional goal at the arena, on November 17, 2004.[2]

When NHL play resumed the following season, Baumgartner cracked the Canucks regular lineup and set NHL career highs in every statistical category and led all team defencemen with 34 points. Following Baumgartner's breakout season, he became an unrestricted free agent, and on July 1, 2006, he signed a two-year deal with the Philadelphia Flyers.[1] However, after six games, he was waived on October 17, 2006, and assigned to the Philadelphia Phantoms of the AHL a week later.

Baumgartner was claimed on re-entry waivers by the Dallas Stars on February 24, 2007, and after spending the 2007–08 season with Dallas's AHL affiliate, the Iowa Stars, Baumgartner was re-assigned by Dallas to the Manitoba Moose. On July 2, 2008, he returned for a third stint with the Canucks, signing a one-year, two-way contract.[3] He will continue to play for the Moose in 2008–09.
