Ducks’ Robidas leaves game with fractured right leg

Apr 21, 2014, 11:42 PM EDT

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Stephane Robidas has been taken to hospital with a fractured right leg, the National Hockey League club announced via Twitter.

Robidas fell awkwardly after Dallas Stars forward Ryan Garbutt crashed into his leg. The incident occurred in the opening minute of the second period of Monday’s Game 3 between the Stars and visiting Ducks.

The 37-year-old Robidas, at the time playing for the Stars, previously suffered a fractured right leg in November and was initially listed out for four-to-six months.

The Ducks acquired Robidas from the Stars just before the NHL’s March 5 trade deadline.

“My heart breaks for him. He worked so hard to come back and he was a big part of this team,” said Ducks’ defenseman Cam Fowler, as per the club’s official Twitter account.

    Really sucks for Robidas. Hope these leg injuries he sustained this year don’t end his career.

      While I agree with the sentiment, that’s just bad placement. Let the Kings fans be the only ones who make this story about themselves.
