DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — The Dallas Stars have traded defenseman Stephane Robidas to the Anaheim Ducks for a conditional fourth round selection in the 2014 NHL Draft, the team announced on Tuesday.

The 37-year-old, who has played parts of 11 seasons with Dallas, has not appeared in a game since fracturing his leg on Nov. 29 vs. Chicago.

Robidas has appeared in 24 games for the team this season, posting five points (4 G, 1 A).

He ranks seventh in franchise history with 704 games played, registering 211 points (46 G, 165 A) in two stints with the team.

“Stephane is the consummate professional,” said Stars General Manager Jim Nill. “He has set a great example for our young core, not only when he was playing, but in his recovery as well. We want to wish Stephane and his family the best and thank him for all that he’s done in his time here.”

The pick gives the Stars nine total picks in this year’s draft, including Calgary’s sixth round selection.
