The Toronto Maple Leafs have Stephane Robidas in the lineup against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday.
Robidas was a healthy scratch on Friday to try to preserve the veteran defenseman's energy levels. At his best, he's a blueliner who can mix physicality and halfway decent scoring for a solid all-around game. His health issues make him an iffy play in fantasy nowadays, however. Oct 18 - 6:47 PM

Stephane Robidas will be a healthy scratch Friday night.

The 37-year-old veteran has been outplayed by Toronto youngsters Morgan Rielly and Stuart Percy early into the year. The Leafs want to get Jake Gardiner back into the lineup after he was scratched for the last two games, so Robidas will sit to make room for him.

Stephane Robidas will make his preseason debut on Friday.

He skated alongside Dion Phaneuf during Thursday's session, but he may be paired with Morgan Rielly or Jake Gardiner once the regular season begins. Robidas suffered two separate leg fractures last year, but he's ready to return to game action.

Stephane Robidas (leg) is hoping to return to the Maple Leafs lineup on October 3rd.

Robidas wants to play in the Leafs’ preseason game against Detroit on October 3rd. The 37-year-old defenseman broke his leg while playing for Anaheim in last year’s playoffs, and was cleared for contact on Saturday. "Conditioning-wise, I felt good," said Robidas. "It’s more just the timing…getting comfortable with the puck and the one-and-one battles."

Great news for the Toronto Maple Leafs: defenseman Stephane Robidas was cleared for contact on Saturday.

Word already surfaced that he was practicing today, but this is even better news. While he might not be the flashiest player, Robidas marries respectable scoring ability, decent PIM (679 in 885 career games) and strong hits (was fourth among defensemen with 136 in 2012-13) for a nice bit of versatile depth if reasonably healthy.

Stephane Robidas (leg) is on the ice at practice Saturday morning with his Maple Leaf teammates.

This is a very good sign as Robidas has seemingly recovered from his latest broken leg. It is not clear if the veteran rearguard has been cleared for contact, though. Robidas is paired with Dion Phaneuf for scrimmages Saturday which could be a preview of the Buds' top defensemen duo for the season.

Stephane Robidas (leg) might get the green light to participate in contact drills this weekend.

Robidas broke his leg in April and has been working his way back ever since. This has obviously limited him during training camp and we're concerned about the possibility of him being rusty going into the season.

Stephane Robidas was on the ice Saturday but was still skating on his own.

He is still recovering from a broken leg and may not be ready for the start of the season. That said, we should see Robidas participating in team drills soon and if he does miss the first few games of the season he should be back in action soon thereafter. Look for Robidas to be paired with Jake Gardiner once he returns to action.

Stephane Robidas (leg) expects to participate in drills during training camp.

He's hoping to play in a couple of preseason games and be ready for the start of the year in October. Robidas is still recovering from two separate leg fractures, but he's been skating since the end of June and said he felt "great" earlier this month.
Sep 18 - 11:52 AM

Stephane Robidas hasn't received the green light for contact yet, but he isn't concerned.

"I'm feeling great," said Robidas, who suffered two separate leg fractures. "I've been skating since the end of June, skating pretty hard, training hard in the gym trying to get back to where I was. Everything has been really good. I was in Toronto last week, I'm not cleared for contact yet [...] but I've been skating really hard with the power skating coach and doing lots of stuff, so I've been feeling really good on the ice. So that's very positive." It sounds like he's on the right track, so it wouldn't be surprising if he was ready for the start of the regular season.
Sep 4 - 12:32 PM

Stephane Robidas said he's about 95 percent recovered from a broken leg he suffered in April.

He's expected to be paired with Morgan Rielly or Jake Gardiner in 2014-15 to add a veteran presence. "Leadership, compete, character, (Robidas) has all the things we're looking for," GM Dave Nonis said. "People that I know, that Brendan knows, all speak very highly of him. He won't be terribly vocal, but in terms of leading by example, he's a guy we targeted right away." He also gives the Leafs another right-handed shot on the back end.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed defenseman Stephane Robidas to a three-year/$9 million contract.

There were plenty of teams interested in the 37-year-old defenseman but he chose the Maple Leafs. He broke his leg twice last season but he should be 100 percent by training camp if he is not so already. Robidas is a solid defenseman who can score a bit but his veteran presence will help on the ice and in the dressing room.

The agent for UFA defenseman Stephane Robidas claims his client is fielding offers from a numbers of teams interested in acquiring his services.

Robidas is reportedly seeking a 2-3 year contract and has been contacted by as many as eight different clubs. The blueliner is believed to have fully recovered from the broken leg that ended his season in April and has assured teams he'll be at 100 percent by the start of training camp.
Jun 30 - 7:21 PM

Stephane Robidas, whose season ended due to a broken right leg, is interested in extending his career.

Robidas was limited to 38 games in 2013-14. The 37-year-old defenseman is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and Ducks GM Bob Murray didn't seem willing to confirm or deny his team's interest. "He liked it here," Murray said. "Most guys when they come here, they like it here and you can't blame them. It's a good organization. We have great ownership. I'm sure he likes it here, but it's a process over the next couple of weeks regarding the direction we're going. I thought he was getting better every game before the injury. I feel real bad for him because he's a warrior and a character guy, so he’d definitely a consideration. We’re evaluating everything. "

Stephane Robidas suffered a broken right leg during Monday's game against Dallas.

Robidas will miss the rest of the playoffs as a result. This is a very unfortunate setback for everyone involved. Robidas logged a little over 20 minutes for the Ducks in Games 1 and 2 of their first round series against Dallas, which highlights how much Anaheim has come to rely on him since he was acquired from the Stars in March. At the age of 37, it's also possible that this is bringing an end to Robidas' last postseason run.
