The Dallas Stars will play their next game without their top defenseman.
Stephane Robidas earned an automatic one-game suspension after boarding Anaheim Duck forward Matt Beleskey last night. Beleskey would since announce that he is okay, via Twitter. Robidas will be replaced on the blue line by rookie Philip Larsen who has been playing with their AHL affiliate Texas Stars this season.
In eight games so far, Robidas has one goal and two assists with a plus-8 rating and has been a leader on this young Stars team.
