The NHL trade deadline isn’t until Wednesday at 3pm, but the Anaheim Ducks are making plenty of moves ahead of time. In addition to shipping Dustin Penner off to Washington, the Ducks have acquired defenseman Stephane Robidas from the Dallas Stars.
Heading back to Dallas is the fourth-round pick that Anaheim acquired in the Dustin Penner trade to Washington at the same time.
In 24 games played this season, Robidas has just a goal and four assists while averaging nearly 20 minutes of ice time per game. Despite his lack of production, and time missed due to injuries, Robidas is a player that will add a scoring touch to the Ducks blue line. He will also provided help on their powerplay unit.
