Antoine Roussel is playing standout hockey at the IIHF World Hockey championships in Belarus.

He has been the best skater on the surprising French team with four goals and six points in five games. We have always liked Roussel's overall game. If the offence is real and he can improve just a little at the NHL level next season, he could be one of the top mid-round picks in any draft.
