He was named an NHL All-Star in 2009 as a member of the Stars. In 2015, Robidas was nominated by the Toronto chapter of the PHWA as the Maple Leafs' nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy as the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey.
