Stephane Robidas Added To All-Star Roster

ROBIDAS NAMED TO PLAY IN NHL ALL-STAR GAME


Frisco, Tex. – The National Hockey League announced today that Dallas Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas has been named to the 2009 NHL All-Star Game. Robidas will replace injured Detroit defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom on the Western Conference squad. The 57th NHL All-Star Game will be played this Sunday evening at Montreal’s Bell Centre (5 p.m. CT, VERSUS, Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket).

This will mark Robidas’ first NHL All-Star appearance. The Sherbrooke, Quebec, native grew up a Canadiens fan and broke into the league with Montreal in 1999.

"To be an All-Star anywhere would be great," Robidas said. "But to play in Montreal, that will be something very special."

Robidas has appeared in 41 games for Dallas this season, leading the team in time-on-ice per game at 24:28. He has scored two goals and added 16 assists for 18 points with a +9 rating (also tops on the team).

"Stephane has earned this honor,” Stars Head Coach Dave Tippett said. “He has been given an opportunity with our team and he has seized it. He is such a hard-worker; he really epitomizes how we want to play as a team."

Robidas joins teammate Mike Modano on the Western Conference All-Star Team. Stars forward James Neal will also be in Montreal as part of the YoungStars Game, presented by Upper Deck.

“This is a tremendous honor,” said Robidas. “I am really looking forward to it.”

The 2009 NHL All-Star Weekend in Montreal will celebrate the Montreal Canadiens’ Centennial season with live national broadcasts of the Honda/NHL SuperSkills on Saturday, Jan. 24, and the NHL All-Star Game on Sunday, Jan. 25, on VERSUS in the United States. NHL Radio will provide exclusive, national radio coverage which can be heard on stations around the United States (the All-Star Game can be heard locally on Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket) and Canada as well as on Sirius XM Radio's NHL Home Ice, located at XM channel 204 and on SIRIUS channel 208 with the “Best of XM” programming package. NHL.com and NHL Network will provide extensive coverage of the All-Star Weekend.
