Dallas Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas broke his right leg in the second period of his team's 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday.
Robidas was wheeled off the ice on a stretcher and taken to the hospital. While helping to kill off a Dallas penalty, the 36-year-old Robidas slid hard into the boards beyond the goal line. He stayed down on the ice holding his leg just below the knee. "It didn't look good," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "He's been playing real well. That's the only real negative from this game." Robidas is in his 11th season with the Stars, the longest tenure on the team, and his 14th NHL season. In his absence, Dallas played only five defensemen.

Stephane Robidas netted a goal for Dallas, but it fell 2-1 in the shootout Saturday night.
Robidas has had a few seasons here and there where he's been relevant in fantasy leagues, but the 36-year-old isn't worth a look this year. He has just one goal and an assist on the season. Lane MacDermid and Vernon Fiddler chipped in with the assists.

Stephane Robidas is Dallas' only right-handed defenseman on their NHL roster.
Trevor Daley and Sergei Gonchar have often played on the right side, but being an actual right-handed shot may help Robidas remain in the team's top-four defense group this campaign. It's also a good sign for him that new coach Lindy Ruff made him the second most used defenseman on Team Canada, behind only Dan Hamhuis, at the World Championships. Robidas may get a lighter load this year in Dallas with the arrival of Gonchar. It's also possible he could be traded at some point, but until that day comes he'll be an important veteran on the team.

Stephane Robidas didn't do as well as he would have liked in his stint with HIFK Helsinki of the Finnish league.
Robidas had two goals and five points in 15 SM-liiga games. "The Finnish League is very good, and the challenges are really tough," Robidas said. "The rinks are all different sizes, so sometimes you get a big European rink and sometimes you get a rink that's closer to the NHL. You have to adjust game to game. It's an intense league, so they play very hard." Robidas thinks he put too much pressure on himself, but on a positive note, his hip and shoulder felt good. He's had hip and shoulder problems in the past.
