In 2007–08, Rougeau factored in the Cheminots du Cégep St-Jérôme winning the Collégial AA championship with a perfect 27–0 record. The following year, she helped Dawson Blues to a 31–1 record and a runner-up finish in the Collégial AA playoffs of 2008–09. For the season, she led Dawson defenders in scoring. Dawson competed in the 2009 Junion Women’s Hockey League Challenge Cup in Washington, D.C. and Rougeau helped the team win the tournament.


Rougeau joined Cornell in 2009 and was named an NCAA Second Team All-American and Ivy League Rookie of the Year. She ranked second among Cornell defenders and freshmen in scoring in 2009–10.

In addition, she was team captain for that game. She was captain once more, as part of Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team as they won a silver medal at the 2008 IIHF World Women’s Under-18 Championships. She was recognized as Top Defender.
