Roussel is expected to miss an extended period of time with an upper-body injury.
Roussel left Thursday’s game after blocking a Johnny Boychuk shot and did not return. Stars’ head coach Lindy Ruff said that “it’s not good news” and added that “in all likelihood, the rest of the season.” It looks like Roussel’s season will end with 12 goals and 15 assists (27 points) in 60 games.
Roussel (upper-body) is a game-time decision on Wednesday.
Roussel has missed the last four games with an upper-body injury and will be a game-time decision on Wednesday. He was a full participant in Monday’s practice, but didn’t take part in the morning skate. He was likely receiving treatment this morning and remains a game-time decision despite skipping the skate.
The Stars have placed Antoine Roussel (upper-body) on injured reserve.
Roussel missed the Stars final game before the Christmas break and finds himself on IR retroactive to December 20th, which means he is eligible to play whenever he is ready to go. His move to IR allowed the Stars to recall Jason Dickinson from Texas (AHL).
Roussel (undisclosed) is doubtful for Friday’s game.
Roussel missed Friday’s morning skate because of an undisclosed injury and is listed as doubtful for Friday’s game vs. the Kings. Roussel, who has 17 points (5G / 12A) in 34 games this season, will be replaced by Patrik Nemeth as the Stars go with seven defensemen.
Roussel will return from his two-game suspension on Tuesday.
After a two games suspension for cross-checking Adam McQuaid last Tuesday, Roussel will play tonight in St. Louis. With Tyler Seguin out, the Stars had to shake their lines up, which means Roussel will play in the top-6.
Roussel has been suspended for two games for cross-checking Adam McQuaid on Tuesday.
Roussel has been suspended for the next two games after he cross-checked McQuaid in the face on Tuesday. He will miss Friday’s game vs. Florida and Saturday’s game in Colorado. He is eligible to return next Tuesday in St. Louis.
The Stars and Antoine Roussel avoid arbitration and agree to terms on a four-year deal worth $8 million.
Roussel, 24, had 14 goals and 15 assists while averaging 13:20 TOI in 81 games for the Stars last season. Roussel is an interesting fantasy asset because he has skill but an in your face attitude which helped him compile 209 penalty minutes last year. He is worth a late-round flier (in PIMS leagues) because of his 20-goal, 200 PIMS potential.
Roussel was a healthy scratch last night, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Rangers. Roussel has become on of the NHL's premiere "pests" and is a serviceable asset in leagues that include PIMs. He currently leads all players with a 109 PIMs and his 15 points (8G / 7A) is tops among players in the top-10 in PIMs.
