DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas Stars have placed defenseman Stephane Robidas on injured reserve with a broken right leg and recalled Jamie Oleksiak from their AHL affiliate.

The team said Saturday that the 36-year-old Robidas is expected to miss four to six months, jeopardizing his return this season. He was injured when he slid hard into the boards in the second period of a 2-1 shootout loss to Chicago on Friday.

Robidas ranks fourth among Dallas defensemen in games (704), assists (165) and points (211). The Stars signed him as a free agent in 2005. He has five points in 24 games this season.

Oleksiak leads all Texas Stars defensemen with three goals in 22 games. The 20-year-old made his debut for Dallas last season.
