My 2010-2011 Robi gamer came in this weekend. Unfortunately my pictures really don't show the wear thats on this jersey.
He was one of my favorite players and defensemen to watch back then. Such a small guy (this gamer is a size 54) but full of fight and heart. I always remembered him standing up for his teammates the best he could and was always willing to take the big hits. He went through many injuries including concussions, broken noses, broken jaw, breaking his right leg twice. Straight from his wiki page -
"Robidas won TSN's "No Guts, No Glory" contest, an unofficial award for the 2008–09 NHL season's toughest player. He was selected as the winner after a loose puck had broken his jaw in a game against the Phoenix Coyotes; Robidas missed only one shift after the incident and played more minutes than any skater in that game."
I'm stoked to have this alternate piece of Robi's history with Dallas.
