Stephane Robidas didn't play at all in 2015-16 and he may not see any action next season as well.
"He’ll be here, but whether he can (play) or not, that's an unknown," said GM Lou Lamoriello on Robidas' status for September. "His career could be over, we don't know." The veteran defender has been suffering from a knee problem. Apr 12 - 8:54 AM

It seems unlikely that Stephane Robidas (knee) will return this season.

Robidas is on the injured reserve list, although the exact cause of his injury isn't clear. The Stars' Kevin McGran suggested that the Leafs simply don't have an interest in using him, so he remains on the injured list. Whatever the case may be, we haven't seen any news to suggest that Robidas is making progress towards a return.

Stephane Robidas (knee) hasn't gotten back on the ice yet.

"Even with the time off, I'm not too optimistic," GM Lou Lamoriello said Monday. "He's not skating yet." Robidas appeared to be OK at training camp, but he started the season on injured reserve due to some "wear and tear" and there haven't been many updates on his status ever since.

Stephane Robidas (knee) has indeed been placed on injured reserve by Toronto.

It was expected that he would start the year on Toronto's IR list. He didn't practice on Tuesday because of a knee/groin problem.

Stephane Robidas is apparently injured and may start the season on injured reserve.

Coach Mike Babcock said that the veteran defender had a sore knee throughout camp, which became a groin problem. Robidas has battled injury issues for the past two seasons and he was limited to 52 games last year.

Contrary to reports, Stephane Robidas has not been placed on waivers.

He wasn't at Toronto's practice on Monday, which fueled speculation that he could be on his way to the minors. An update on where he stands is expected to come later in the day.

Stephane Robidas admitted that this year's training camp has been more intense because of the level of competition.

"It brings the level of intensity a little higher," defenceman Stephane Robidas said of the competition at camp. "Everybody wants a job. Everybody wants a spot on the team. I want to prove myself and the other guy next to me wants to prove himself. Nobody is guaranteed of anything. If you want more ice time, you've got to earn it and I think that's the way it should be. Our performance is going to dictate how much we play." The 38-year-old is pretty much guaranteed a spot on Toronto's blue line, but he should see his minutes decrease quite a bit this season. He probably won't have much fantasy value in 2015-16.

Despite suffering some serious injuries in the last few seasons, Stephane Robidas says he still loves hockey and is ready for the upcoming season.

"I know I can still play. I have a passion for it, I still love it. Last year, from November until we shut it down, I played with the bad shoulder. I couldn’t sleep at night," said Robidas. I’m not looking for any excuses or anything like that, but I had started to feel (comfortable) and then the shoulder gave in." The 38-year-old scored one goal and added six assists in 52 games last season. He may have slowed down, but he could be an important mentor to several of Toronto's young players.

Stephane Robidas has received the green light to resume skating.

He missed the last 17 games of the season because of a shoulder injury that required surgery. Robidas also recently had a screw removed from his previously broken leg. He took to the ice for the first time on Thursday. We should get a clearer idea of his status when training camps begin.

Stephane Robidas is the Maple Leaf nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy.

This trophy is awarded annually to the NHL player who best exhibits "perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey". Robidas has overome two broken legs in order to return to hockey at the age of 38. That said, the injury-prone defenseman is out for the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury.

Veteran defenseman Stephane Robidas is done for the season, the Toronto Maple Leafs said Sunday.

He will have surgery on his left shoulder, perhaps as early as Wednesday. "We decided it would be better for him to have the surgery since it is a long recovery in order for him to be available for training camp next year," Leafs interim coach Peter Horachek said. "We felt it would be better for him to get it done. He has some tears in his labrum and his rotator cuff. We don't want this to be a recurring thing." Robidas, 38, played 51 games for the Maple Leafs this season, scoring a goal and adding six assists in his first season in Toronto after signing a three-year contract as a free agent on July 1. He has very little or no fantasy value.

Stephane Robidas will return to Maple Leafs' lineup on Tuesday night against the Nashville Predators.

Robidas hasn't played since Jan. 14th, but has had a nice fantasy season through his first 38 games. He has five points, 30 PIMs, 54 blocks, and 105 hits. If you're in a league that rewards tough guys, consider picking the veteran defender.

Stephane Robidas will probably miss Toronto's next two games with an upper-body injury.

Robidas has been battling through the ailment since Nov. 1. If he missed the Leafs' next two contests, then Robidas will also have the All-Star break to help him recover from the lingering problem.
