      Maple Leafs' Stephane Robidas: Still not skating

      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.

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.

    • Placed on IR Wednesday

      News: Stephane Robidas (groin) was placed on IR Wednesday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
      Analysis: Stephane Robidas has been saddled with both groin and knee injuries, which prompted the Leafs' move to place him on IR. It's unclear as to how long Robidas will be out for and where he'll slot in upon his return. The 38-year-old had a goal and six assists in 52 games last season for the Leafs.
    • Knee, groin both bothering him

      News: Stephane Robidas is suffering from multiple ailments, but none of them are so far related to his shoulder surgery in March, reports "His knee has been sore all camp, it's affecting his groin now," coach Mike Babcock said.
      Analysis: "He had an off day yesterday, came in today and he did what he's supposed to do to try to get ready to go and he was unable to go," continued Babcock. It's all plausible -- the knee bone is connected to the leg bone which is connected to the ... well, you know. But what is even more interesting is that it has not been characterized as a mysterious lower-body injury as was the past regime's approach. A trip to the IR is likely and it'll make the Leafs' roster legal before Tuesday's deadline. As for Stephane Robidas, there is no sense yet as to when he might return.

It was later determined that Robidas was also dealing with a torn bicep, but the 38-year-old defenseman now seems to be fully recovered from the myriad ailments that plagued him in 2014-15. As the elder statesman on the Toronto roster, Robidas will be counted on to provide leadership along the blue line, though his actual fantasy contributions figure to be minimal. He scored just seven points while averaging only 17:04 of ice time last season, a number that could plunge further if the rebuilding Leafs decide to make room for more of their younger options on defense.
