Playing career

Robidas was selected 164th overall by the Montreal Canadiens, in the 7th round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. Played two seasons with Montreal (1999–2000 and 2000–2001). Claimed by the Atlanta Thrashers on October 4, 2002 in the NHL Waiver Draft, and subsequently dealt to the Dallas Stars for a 6th round selection in 2002. After a brief stint with Dallas, he was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in November 2003 for Jon Klemm and a fourth round selection in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He played for the Frankfurt Lions of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) during the locked-out 2004–05 season. There he played along side Doug Weight and the pair became an instant fan favorite. In August 2004, following the NHL Lockout, the Stars signed him as a free agent to a two-year contract. Before the Stars signed him, he was prepared to play the season in Germany as all of the other 29 NHL teams rejected him. In December, 2006 the Stars signed him to a 3-year, $4.5 million [USD] extension. On March 17, 2007, he was punched while charging Jordin Tootoo of the Nashville Predators after Mike Modano was checked by Tootoo. Tootoo still had his gloves on when he punched Robidas, and he hit Robidas square in the face. Robidas went down hard and was taken off the ice on a stretcher. Robidas was sent to the hospital on a strecher for examination. He was later checked out of the hospital with a concussion and flew back to Dallas with the team.

During the 2008 NHL playoffs against the Anaheim Ducks in game 5, Robidas took a clearing shot off the face from Todd Marchant. That shot put him down on the ice for awhile and found out shortly after that it broke his nose. He came back out shortly after with some stitches and wearing a full face-mask and had a solid outing even though Dallas came up short 5–2. The next game in Dallas, Robidas scored the game tying goal, shortly after he set up Stu Barnes in the series clinching goal. As Dallas went on to defeat the Anaheim Ducks 4–1 and took the series 4–2 on home ice.

Robidas was selected by the NHL to play in the 57th NHL All-Star Game in Montreal, the team which drafted him, due to his elevated play despite suffering from a broken jaw and having to wear another full face-mask.

Robidas won the "No Guys, No Glory" contest from TSN, an unofficial award for the 2008–09 NHL season's toughest player. He was selected as the winner when he broke his jaw from a puck in a game against the Phoenix Coyotes, but afterwards only missed one shift and played more minutes than any other skater that game.
