Stars Bring Back Robidas

August 6, 2005

Defenseman Returns To Stars After Playing 90 Games For Team From 2002-2003

FRISCO, Tex. -- Dallas Stars General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today that the club has signed free agent defenseman Stephane Robidas to a two-year contract. Per club policy, no financial terms were disclosed.

"We're very familiar with Stephane's abilities and we're glad to have him back in the organization," said Armstrong. "He is a solid defenseman who will bring stability and depth to our blue line."

Robidas, 28, played for Dallas during the 2002-03 season and parts of the 2003-04 campaign, before being dealt to Chicago on Nov. 17, 2003 in the trade that brought defenseman Jon Klemm to the Stars. In 90 games with Dallas over those two seasons, the 5-11, 189-lb. defenseman posted four goals and seven assists for 11 points with 43 penalty minutes. He skated in all 12 of Dallas' games during the 2003 Stanley Cup Playoffs, recording an assist and 20 penalty minutes.

The Sherbrooke, Que., native spent the 2004-05 season with the Frankfurt Lions in the German Elite League, registering 47 points (15 goals and 32 assists) and 64 penalty minutes in 51 games. Prior to being acquired by Dallas, Robidas skated for Montreal from 1999-2002. In all, he has appeared in 247 career NHL games, tallying 46 points (13 goals and 33 assists) and 104 PIM. He was originally drafted by Montreal in the seventh round (No. 164 overall) of the 1995 Entry Draft.
