Stephane Robidas is still a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs but he won’t be patrolling the blue line this upcoming season.
The 39-year-old defenceman is at the NHL rookie tournament in London, Ont. alongside assistant general manager Mark Hunter and team scouts acting as a consultant for the club.
"I'll be doing some work at this event, with the Marlies and some NCAA," Robidas said.
Robidas did not pass his physical and won't play this season. Maple Leafs president Lou Lamoriello feels that Robidas is a great pro and teacher to have around young players so he will continue to be around the team, but without an official title in the front office.
Robidas didn’t play all of last season due to a leg injury suffered in training camp. He has one year left on his deal with the Leafs worth $3 million.
