Update: Stars’ Robidas hospitalized after fracturing leg

Nov 29, 2013, 10:22 PM EDT

Update: Robidas has been taken to a hospital (the UT Southwestern Center) with a fractured leg, CSNChicago.com’s Tracey Myers reports.

Dallas Stars defenseman Stephane Robidas left the ice on a stretcher after falling into the end boards on Friday.

It’s believed that he twisted his right knee/leg during the fall. Video (or a GIF) of the unfortunate incident will be added when or if it’s available.

The 36-year-old isn’t a widely known blueliner, but his versatility has served the Stars well over the years. He was commended for that when he played in the 2009 NHL All-Star Game.

While it seems like his role has diminished a bit this season – he’s averaging almost two fewer minutes per game – this could still be a substantial loss for Dallas. PHT will keep an eye out for updates regarding his condition.

    The Chicago feed kept saying it looked like a possible broken ankle. Looked like a nasty knee injury to me.

      I guess the people that should know more than me..do. Depending on how bad the break is, that’s probably better than any knee injury I was presuming.

    I saw the actual play as it happened and thought he just landed on it wrong causing a bad sprain, but seemed to be in incredible pain. Then I saw the replay and had that sick feeling. Ugh, how horrible is that. From everything they were saying, this guy plays huge for Dallas. One can only hope this is not a season ender or worse.
