With Stephane Robidas getting a 5 minute Boarding Major along with a game miscoudnt in last night's 5-2 loss against the Anaheim Ducks when he rammed Anaheim Winger Matt Belesky midway through the 3rd period when he rammed the boards in a hit that wasn't as bad as it seemed.
Due to him picking up a 2nd Boarding Major in less then half-a-season (41 games) he has picked up an automatic 1 game suspension and will have to sit out tomorrow night's game against the LA Kings.
To fill in for Robidas tomorrow night will by 20 Year Old Danish Defensemen Philip Larsen who's playing his first full season in the American Hockey League with the Texas Stars. So far in the AHL Season, he's played in 6 games and has contributed 2 assists in his time.
This continues with the youth movement that the Stars are continuing to do this season to take a more serious look at their young guys in Texas this season. Going on with theme when Aaron Gagnon was brought up for one game back on October 18 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. They were plans to bring up Swiss Defensemen Severin Blindenbacher, but couldn't because of a minor injury substained in a car accident last week.
