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. Apr 15 - 9:26 AM

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.
Apr 1 - 2:47 AM

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.
Mar 9 - 4:11 PM

Stephane Robidas will miss Dallas, but he's looking forward to playing for a team of Anaheim's caliber.

"Having a chance to join a team of the quality that Anaheim has, I'm very, very excited," Robidas said. "I talked to their GM, and we're going for a Stanley Cup. That’s what I've been waiting for, for a long time. I think it's a great opportunity for me, and I'm very excited for the chance the Ducks are giving me." This might be his last good chance to win it all. Robidas is 37 years old and has 44 games worth of playoff experience. He's currently recovering from a leg injury.
Mar 5 - 9:00 AM

Stephane Robidas (leg) has been dealt by the Dallas Stars to the Anaheim Ducks.

Anaheim is giving up the fourth round pick they just acquired from the Washington Capitals in the Dustin Penner trade. In other words, Anaheim has essentially swapped Penner for Robidas. The 37-year-old blueliner has been limited to 24 games this season due to a leg injury, but once he's healthy he will provide the Ducks with a capable top-four defenseman.
Mar 4 - 2:20 PM

Stephane Robidas may return in mid-March from a broken leg and his name is coming up in trade rumors.

"A lot of teams covet [Robidas]," an NHL exec told on Monday. "He's a veteran right-hander that competes like a bastard. He'd be a perfect fit for the Bruins." Boston has been searching for a defenseman to help absorb some of the minutes lost by a season-ending injury to Dennis Seidenberg and Robidas could do the trick.
Mar 4 - 7:58 AM

Stephane Robidas is considered "way ahead of schedule" in his return from a broken leg, according to Stars assistant coach James Patrick.

Patrick says Robidas is still "weeks away," though. Robidas broke his leg Nov. 29 and the timetable was four to six months. That he's practicing already is an excellent sign. "I am very happy. I didn’t expect to be back before the break, having two practices before the break. I think that was a big step for me mentally," Robidas said. "I was pretty happy with it, even though I am not 100 percent. The last couple practices I’ve been able to go through every drill. Guys are taking it pretty easy on me, but just to be back in that groove, it’s been really good." There are rumblings that he could be back by mid-March, but Robidas doesn't want to set a timeframe just yet.
Feb 22 - 8:56 PM

Stephane Robidas feels his recovery from a broken leg is going well.

"It's amazing how much I'm progressing," said Robidas, who broke his tibia and the fibula on Nov. 29 against Chicago. "When I started, I didn't do any stops and starts and couldn't pivot. Saturday, I could pivot. Then, yesterday, I could do some stops — not full speed, but some stops. And then today, I did a practice with the guys. I'm not ready to go, but it's ahead of schedule." He isn't projected to be available until mid-March at the earliest. Robidas won't rush back either because he wants to be completely healed just in case he has to test unrestricted free agency in the summer.
Feb 6 - 11:13 AM

Stephane Robidas (leg) has started skating by himself.

Robidas' first skate since he was hurt was on Monday and he followed it up with another on-ice session on Wednesday. "It's pretty good. It's better than I expected, to be honest," Robidas said. "A little bit of it is pain, a lot of it is mental. You've got to trust it. We just did a little skating, no stop and start, no pivoting. I went forward, laps where I did c-cuts and kind of pushed on one leg. Obviously the stride is not the same, but I try to keep it as close as possible. Monday I couldn't do any crossover to one side, but by the end of today I was able to do some. Progress." Robidas isn't close to being ready to return to the Dallas Stars' lineup.
Jan 15 - 4:38 PM

Stephane Robidas (leg) was at the Stars' practice facility on Monday.

He suffered a broken leg on Nov. 29 against Chicago and the initial timetable for his return was set at four-to-six months. "It's coming. I've never had this injury, so it's tough to know if I am on schedule or not," Robidas said. "It's tough to compare. Every injury is different, but at least now I can walk more like normal. It's tight a little bit, but it's getting closer. It's good." There's no timetable available for when he'll be ready to resume skating.

Stephane Robidas has been placed on injured reserve and he's projected to miss four-to-six months with a broken leg.

He suffered a leg fracture in Friday's shootout loss to Chicago. Robidas has five points and a plus-7 rating in 24 games this season. He may not be able to return this year as a result of the ailment.
