Antoine Roussel is relishing his role as an agitator.
"It's a big part of my job, so if they're worrying about me, then I know I'm doing my job," he said. "You don't want to go so far that you hurt your team, but you do want to make sure that you are playing hard and the other team knows you will play hard against them." He scored two goals against Chicago, to give him seven on the year, and he got under the skin of the Blackhawks throughout the contest.

Antoine Roussel and the rest of the Dallas Stars' fourth line carried the mail on Tuesday, fueling a 6-3 win against the Anaheim Ducks.
If Roussel could score with some consistency, he can be a nice addition because of his PIMs (63 so far in 2013-14). He's also a decent option if hits are a factor. He had seven goals and 14 points last season, so if he could translate that to 20-30 points, he becomes intriguing in deep leagues.

Antoine Roussel will wear jersey No. 21 in 2013-14.
He wore No. 60 last season while skating in 39 contests with Dallas. Roussel has agreed to pay for replacement jerseys for every fan who bought his old jersey last year because the change wasn't his idea. He also promised a fan over Twitter that he wouldn't be switching numbers, so he must feel bad for misleading him and is doing a generous thing as a result. He wasn't the only player to alter his number this off-season; Jordie Benn switched from No. 58 to No. 24, Ryan Garbutt has changed from No. 40 to No. 16 and Jamie Oleksiak will wear No. 5 after donning No. 43.
