Antoine Roussel F DAL 1 Day

Roussel potted an empty-net goal -- his seventh marker of the season -- in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Canucks.

The Stars' resident pest now has 16 points and 50 shots to go with his 62 PIMS, making him relevant in nearly all formats that count PIM this season. Roussel has four points in his last four games after being held off the scoresheet for the previous six, so owners may want to get him back in their lineups if they haven't done so already.

Roussel dished out a pair of assists in Saturday's win over the Devils.

With 15 points (six goals) in 29 games, Roussel has been a pleasant surprise this season. On track for the first 40-point campaign of his NHL career, the left-winger is a solid secondary scorer in Dallas. Aside from a recent six-game pointless drought, Rousell has been fairly consistent thus far, recording at least one point in 14 of 29 games. With 62 PIM on the season, Roussel is worthy of a look in some deeper leagues.

Roussel bagged a goal on one of his three shot attempts in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Jets.

The tally ended a 10-game stretch without a goal for the winger, dating all the way back to Nov. 15. Even so, Roussel still has a respectable 13 points in 28 games, and has supplemented that offense with 62 PIM, ranking fifth in the league in that category.

Roussel picked up a power-play assist and skated 19:05 in Tuesday's win over the Coyotes.

That's three straight games with a helper for Roussel, and two of them have come on the man advantage, where he's now got the benefit of riding shotgun with Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn and Jason Spezza. He saw a full four minutes of power-play time Tuesday.

Roussel was fined, but not suspended for "punching an unsuspecting opponent," San Jose's Justin Braun.

Good news for Roussel owners, especially since coach Lindy Ruff is high on Roussel right now and has added him to the team's top PP unit.

Roussel will have a hearing for a punch thrown at a defenseless player in Saturday's loss to San Jose.

Roussel could see a couple of games for that punch, which was pretty dirty. He caught Sharks d-man Justin Braun in the face while a ref was holding Braun. Expect to lose Roussel for a couple of games. Bad timing for Roussel owners, as coach Ruff had just put Roussel on the top power play unit.

Roussel had an assist, 14 penalty minutes, and a pair of shots in Saturday's loss to San Jose.

Roussel has spent the last two games on the top power play unit. The Dallas PP has struggled, but he's on the ice with Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, and Jason Spezza -- that unit is going to find its touch. All the better if it's while Roussel is with them. It's a big chance to get a little extra production from a guy who will otherwise get you 20-30 points and a big pile of penalty minutes in fantasy.

Roussel registered his fourth goal of the season in Friday's loss to the Ducks.

Though Roussel isn't supplying huge hit totals yet (15 in 10 games), he's provided a hint of scoring (six points) to go along with his usual willingness to drop the gloves (27 PIM). He's one of the few hard-nosed fighters in the league capable of picking up some slack offensively, making Roussel more intriguing than most fourth-line scrappers.

Roussel tallied a goal in Saturday's loss to the Predators.

Roussel, who was one of four Stars players to finish with a positive plus/minus rating on the evening, has a goal and assist through two games. As per usual, Roussel also displayed his chippiness on defense Saturday, accruing 14 penalty minutes on three infractions.

Stars GM Jim Nill said Antoine Roussel is a big part of the Stars' plans going forward.

Roussel inked a four-year, $8 million extension with Dallas. "He's a character guy who has worked hard to become an NHL player," Nill said of Roussel. "It was important for us to get this done with him." Roussel had 29 points and 209 penalty minutes in 81 games in 2013-14.
