Fred Robertson was born October 22, 1911 in Carlisle, England. Prior to making his NHL debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Robertson spent the better part of the previous two seasons as a member of the Toronto Canoe Club of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior "A" Hockey League, the Toronto Eaton's of the Toronto Mercantile Hockey League and the Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey Association Senior "A" Hockey League.

The 1931-32 season marked the NHL debut of Fred Robertston with the Toronto Maple Leafs after he signed as a free agent with the team midway through the season. In eight games with the Maple Leafs, Robertson was held pointless while he accumulated 23 minutes in penalties.

After spending the entire 1932-33 season with the Syracuse Stars of the International Hockey League, Robertson returned to Toronto's line up in 1933-34 before being traded to the Detroit Red Wings after only two games with the Maple Leafs.

In 24 games with Detroit, Robertson managed to score his first and only NHL goal while splitting his time with the Detroit Olympics of the International Hockey League. Robertson returned to Syracuse in 1934-35 for half of the season before joining the IHL's Cleveland Falcons where he spent the remainder of the regular season and the entire 1935-36 season.

Robertson rejoined the Falcons of the now International-American Hockey League in 1936-37, before they became the Barons in 1937-38. After two more years in the IAHL with the Barons, Robertson returned to Cleveland in 1940-41 and spent four more seasons with the Barons who where now members of the American Hockey League.

After only three games with Cleveland during the 1943-44 season, Fred Robertson was traded to the Pittsburgh Hornets (AHL) where he spent the remainder of the 1943-44 season and the majority of the 1944-45 season.

Even though he spent the better part of the 1944-45 season with the Hornets, Robertson also saw action with the AHL's Hershey Bears. Robertson returned to the Bears line up for the 1945-46 season before joining the AHL's St. Louis Flyers midway through the season.
