Anaheim Ducks defenseman Stephane Robidas has broken his right leg for the second time this season in his first game back in Dallas since being traded from the Stars, according to the Associated Press.
Robidas was undercut by Dallas Stars center Ryan Garbutt early in the second period, causing his right leg to fracture as he fell to the ground. The game marked the veteran's return to Dallas, where he had played for 11 seasons, before being traded to Anaheim at the deadline this season.
The last time Robidas skated in Dallas was in November when he first broke his right leg, and current Stars defenseman Trevor Daley says Monday night brought back bad memories.
"Since I got here, he's been a big part of who I am and what I became," Dallas defenseman Trevor Daley said. "I was in tears when it happened with us. I have a similar feeling right now. It's just a bad feeling in my stomach."The Ducks would eventually lose to the Stars 3-0, leaving Anaheim with a 2-1 series lead.
