Robidas is a speedy and opportunistic attacker who uses his excellent skating abilities and offensive instincts to his advantage. The right-handed center has a very quick stride that allows him to push the pace in transition as a rapid outlet option. He has a wonderful motor, actively pursuing the puck on the forecheck and getting involved in board play without any hesitation. He loves battling for pucks in corners, and flashes excellent balance to fight off checks. He enjoys including himself in all sorts of counterattacks, following rushes closely and trying to sneak to the slot. As the puck carrier he occasionally catches opposing defensemen flat-footed thanks to his blazing speed and high-tempo rushes, but his lack of size and strength often keep him away from cutting into the middle ice. He can be easy to redirect to the outside. He shows encouraging habits in his puck protection while circling around the perimeter, keeping his feet under him to maintain speed and keeping his head up to look for passing options. He looks very poised in his decision-making, showing a patience to wait for the right passing lane. Perhaps his best assets is the uncanny ability to create high-danger scoring chances without the puck, time and again opening himself up in key areas to give prime passing options to his teammates. He reads play effortlessly and gets to his spots in a very instinctive manner, allowing him to flow with the attack fluidly. Shows a willingness to put the effort on the backcheck, and is heavily trusted on to defend on the penalty kill. That said, he has a complete lack of power in his shot, and improving this aspect of his game could be key for him, as it often keeps him away from being a goal-scoring threat despite his constant involvement. With terrific instincts, speed and compete, Robidas already possesses an excellent base to build on, with the upside to become a complementary piece on a middle-six line at the NHL level.
