Anaheim Ducks acquire D Stephane Robidas from Stars; trade away Dustin Penner, Viktor Fasth

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have acquired defenceman Stephane Robidas from the Dallas Stars for a conditional fourth-round pick in this year's draft.

Robidas hasn't played since breaking his leg against Chicago on Nov. 29, but he has been skating in practice. He had five points (four goals, one assist) in 24 games for the Stars this season.

The 37-year-old Robidas is seventh in club history with 704 games played. He has 211 points (46 goals, 165 assists) in two stints, the latter starting in 2005. He has 246 points in 871 career NHL games.

The Dallas draft pick becomes a third-rounder if the Ducks reach the Western Conference finals and Robidas plays in half their playoff games. Anaheim leads the West with 91 points.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
