Robidas (knee) is expected to be placed on injured reserve when the NHL season begins, Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun reports. It's been a struggle for Robidas, who missed all of the 2015-16 campaign with a knee injury. Over the past five seasons, Robidas has played in more than 50 games just once (2014-15). Barring an unexpectedly quick recovery, the 39-year-old defenseman's career appears to be coming to a close.
Leafs general manager Lou Lamoriello isn't sure if Robidas (knee) will be ready for training camp in advance of the 2016-17 season, the Toronto Sun reports. "He'll be here, but whether he can (play) or not, that's an unknown," Lamoriello said. "His career could be over, we don't know." That's been the extent of developments on 39-year-old Robidas, who ended up missing the entire 2015-16 campaign.
Robidas (knee) remains out of action and there is no timetable for his return. The prospect of him returning this season remains awfully bleak. Robidas last appeared in uniform on March 5, although he strangely suited up in three preseason games. He has been riddled with injuries the last two years and appears to be the odd man out among a crop of younger and more talented set of blue liners. Robidas is set to earn $6 million over this year and the next, so he might just be seen as a liability on the books. This may be a sad end to an otherwise solid career.
Robidas (knee) still hasn't resumed skating, and remains without a definitive timetable to return to practice, Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun reports. General manager Lou Lamoriello told reporters Tuesday that Robidas' knee injury still hasn't improved enough to allow the veteran blueliner to return to practice. The Leafs' aren't counting on having the 38-year-old defender back any time soon, and it seems as though Robidas could realistically be in danger of missing the entirety of the 2015-16 campaign.
Head coach Lou Lamoriello indicated Friday that Robidas (groin) remains without a definite time to return to practice, Jonas Siegel of TSN 1050 reports. Robidas hasn't skated in approximately a month, but he's expected to return to Toronto next week to continue his rehab. It's unclear exactly when he'll be able to return to game action, but it appears it could be a ways off.
