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. Aug 23 - 8:21 AM

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.

This trophy is awarded annually to the NHL player who best exhibits "perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey".

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.
Mar 8 - 3:46 PM

Stephane Robidas won't play in Saturday's game against the St. Louis Blues.

It's unclear if Robidas is injured or if the Leafs are just giving him the night off. Both Eric Brewer and Tim Erixon will play.
Mar 7 - 6:56 PM

Stephane Robidas will play Saturday night against Montreal despite missing Saturday morning's skate.

The Leafs' veteran defenseman was given the morning off for family reasons. If for some reason you need Robidas, keep him in your lineup.
Feb 28 - 11:46 AM

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.
Feb 3 - 8:43 PM

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.
Jan 19 - 12:07 PM

Stephane Robidas will dress as Korbinian Holzer sits out Saturday night's tilt with Florida.

If your league tracks non-traditional stats, then Robidas is actually having a nice season through 38 games with 30 PIMs, 54 blocks, and 105 hits this season. Keep him in mind in your deeper pools.
Jan 17 - 6:52 PM

Stephane Robidas will be in the lineup on Wednesday night against the Washington Capitals.

Robidas hasn't played since Dec. 28th, a span of four games. However, through 34 games, he's collected just five points, 30 PIMs, 53 blocks, and a whopping 90 hits, which ranks 47th in the NHL.
Jan 7 - 6:38 PM

Stephane Robidas will again give way to Korbinian Holzer Saturday night against the Jets.

Now sitting for four straight, it's beginning to appear that Coach Carlyle prefers the young Holzer over the veteran Robidas.
Jan 3 - 7:10 PM

Stephane Robidas will once again give way to Korbinian Holzer Friday night against the Wild.

While Robidas has now sat three straight, the Leafs beat the Bruins Wednesday night 4-0 in a shootout, and Holzer played over 20 minutes. Coach Carlyle may just want to keep a good thing rolling.
Jan 2 - 7:56 PM

Stephane Robidas will give way to Korbinian Holzer Wednesday night against Boston.

Appears to just be Coach Carlyle's judgment, and not injury or streakiness. While Holzer may be enticing, he's not quite worth a slot on your roster just yet. Robidas on the other hand has 30 PIMs, 54 blocks, and 90 hits through 34 games thus far this season.

Stephane Robidas will be a healthy scratch Monday night against Tampa Bay.

This will mark the second straight time the Leafs will rest the 37-year-old Robidas on the second of a back-to-back game. It appears the Leafs will try to keep their alternate captain fresh for the second half of the season. In 34 games this season, the veteran defenseman has five assists, a plus 13 rating, and 30 penalty minutes. Korbinian Holzer will take his spot on the blue line Monday night.

Stephane Robidas will return to the lineup Tuesday in Dallas.

He'll lineup with Morgan Rielly on the Leafs' third pairing, and is expected to receive a video tribute to honor his 11 seasons in Dallas. "I spent most of my career here. My life was here," Robidas said. "I even left on really good terms. They were honest and fair with me the whole way and I got nothing but good things to say about the city of Dallas and the organization."
