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. Sep 20 - 12:18 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Stephane Robidas will face his former squad, the Dallas Stars, in the first round.

Anaheim acquired Robidas from the Stars on March 4. Given his familiarity with Anaheim's opposition, he's been helping out his teammates ahead of Game 1. "Obviously he asked me a few questions," Robidas said. "A little bit about what I know about them. Obviously it's part of the game." On the ice, Robidas is serving as a reliable top-four defenseman for the Ducks.

Stephane Robidas, 37, is turning out to be a major addition for the Anaheim Ducks.

Robidas is filling the need for another right-handed shot on the blueline who can also add a little bit of meanness. His most notable contribution came Monday when his first goal as a Duck was the overtime winner in a 5-4 triumph over Winnipeg. It hasn’t been only the timely score. Robidas is logging 20-plus minutes and has shown that he can get the puck quickly out of his own zone while also working his way onto the Ducks’ second power-play unit. "My legs feel good. I feel like I’m 25 again," Robidas said with a laugh. "Don’t expect that every game." But he added, "I feel like I can do it. I was never that rushing defenseman like (Cam) Fowler or anything like that. But if I can jump in the play or do something, I’ll do it. I feel comfortable doing it." Robidas has particularly come in handy as Fowler, the Ducks’ top defenseman this season, remains out because of a sprained knee ligament.
Apr 5 - 9:34 AM

Stephane Robidas scored 16 seconds into overtime and the Anaheim Ducks staged the biggest comeback in team history by rallying from four goals down to beat the Winnipeg Jets 5-4 at Honda Center Monday night.

It was Robidas' first goal as an Anaheim Duck. He also has three assists for the Ducks in seven games. Ryan Getzlaf had a strong night with a goal and an assist, while Corey Perry, Nick Bonino and rookie defenseman Hampus Lindholm also scored for the Ducks. Patrick Maroon assisted two goals in the victory.

Stephane Robidas picked up his first point as an Anaheim Duck on Sunday.

Robidas assisted in his third game wearing an Anaheim uniform after a long career with Dallas. The Ducks acquired him at the trade deadline but needed two weeks to put the defenseman in the lineup as he was recovering from a broken leg. Robidas' best years are behind him but he adds a veteran presence to the blueline and he can certainly chip in with the occasional point.

Stephane Robidas (leg) will play in his first game with the Ducks on Tuesday.

Robidas was acquired from Dallas on March 4, but he hadn't completely recovered from his injury prior to the trade. In addition to being his Ducks debut, this will also be Robidas' first contest since Nov. 29.
Mar 18 - 4:00 PM

Veteran NHL defenseman Stephane Robidas took the pregame warmup with the Ducks Saturday night but did not play in their 2-1 victory over their cross-town rivals, the Los Angeles Kings.

Acquired March 4 from Dallas, Robidas is nearly recovered from a broken leg.
Mar 16 - 9:28 AM

Anaheim Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau said that he'd prefer to give Stephane Robidas his debut with the team on March 18.

While Robidas isn't a high-scorer (five points in 24 games played this season), he's useful in the gritty categories. The defenseman has 12 PIM, 35 SOG, 62 hits and 34 blocked shots in 24 GP. He's shown that he can do a lot of different things, so he could be interesting if the Ducks use him significantly.
