Moe Roberts was born December 13, 1905 in Waterbury, CT. A free agent signing in December of 1925 by the Boston Bruins, Roberts played in two games with the Bruins before joining the New Haven Eagles of the Canadian-American Hockey League for the next two seasons.

From 1928-29 to 1930-31, Moe Roberts was a member of the Canadian-American Hockey League's Philadelphia Arrows before signing as a free agent with the New York Americans in the fall of 1931. After beginning the 1931-32 season with New Haven, Roberts was promoted to the Rangers replacing an injured Roy Worters.

Following a return to New Haven for the 1932-33 season, Moe Roberts rejoined the Americans for six games during the 1933-34 season. Even though he played in six games with the Americans, Roberts spent the majority of the season with the International Hockey League's Cleveland Falcons.

Roberts returned to Cleveland the next season and began the 1935-36 season as a member of the Falcons before playing in one game with the IHL's Syracuse Stars and before being loaned to the Rochester Cardinals (IHL).

From 1936 to 1942 Moe Roberts was a goaltender with the Cleveland Barons of the International-American Hockey League (1936-40) and American Hockey League (1940-42) before playing in three games with the Pittsburgh Hornets (AHL) at the end of the 1941-42 season.

Due to his military obligations, Moe Roberts left the game of hockey for three years (194-45), returning for the 1945-46 season with the Washington Lions of the Eastern Amateur Hockey League before stepping away from the game once again following the 1945-46 season.

Roberts stepped away from the game, only to return in 1950-51, serving as the arena manager for the United States Hockey League's Millwaukee Sea Gulls. Roberts' return to the game action came after he was named as the assistant trainer for the Chicago Black Hawks and had to replace an injured Harry Lumley in a game against the Detroit Red Wings early into the 1951-52 season.

Throughout his NHL career Moe Roberts played in ten games, with a three wins, five losses record and a 3.71 GAA.
