Roussel misfired three times against the Oilers on Saturday, but he did block a season-high three shots in the 5-1 home win.

EDGE Analysis

Roussel has been rather stagnant in the offensive zone since the beginning of December, pitching in only four points through 12 games. However, he's maintained an outstanding 55.3 Corsi For percentage on the season, which goes to show that he's been dominant in the possession game to help a Dallas team that is just four points away from the Central Division-leading Jets.

Roussel (elbow) will slot into the lineup against the Devils on Friday, Mike Heika of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Roussel has played in just one of the Stars' previous seven outings in which he saw 12:27 of ice time and notched one assist, two shots on goal and one block. Even with the injuries, the winger remains on pace for his usual 20-30 point season as he has done in four straight years. The 28-year-old will likely bump Gemel Smith or Remi Elie from the lineup.

Roussel (elbow) will watch Wednesday's contest with the Islanders from the press box, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Wednesday's game will be the second that Roussel has missed through the injury, although bench boss Ken Hitchcock indicated that a return is near when he stated that the Frenchman could play in one or both of the remaining games on their road trip -- Friday in New Jersey and Saturday in Philadelphia. Look for the team to provide an additional update regarding Roussel's health prior to Friday's tilt.

Roussel (elbow) could be active against the Rangers on Monday, according to Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site.

Roussel (illness) is expected to play in Saturday evening's contest against the Golden Knights, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Frenchman must've had quite the nasty illness, as it caused him to miss the past four games. At any rate, we're projecting Roussel (eight points in 25 games) to reprise his role in the bottom six alongside Radek Faksa and Tyler Pitlick.

Roussel (illness) won't play Thursday against the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Roussel was considered a game-time call for Thursday's tilt, so it seems as though he's likely on the verge of returning to action, although he'll have to wait until Saturday against Vegas for his next opportunity to return to the lineup. The 28-year-old winger has notched three goals and eight points in 25 games this campaign.

Roussel (illness) is questionable for Thursday's tilt in St. Louis, Mark Stepneski of the Stars' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though no information has been given about Roussel's illness itself, he's clearly dealing with something more than the sniffles seeing that he's already missed three games. Averaging 13 goals per season over the last four campaigns, Roussel has proven to be a solid depth contributor, but it may be best to steer clear of including the sixth-year Star in lineups with his health in question.

Roussel (illness) wasn't able to play Tuesday against the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

Roussel was fully expected to return to the lineup Tuesday, so his absence came as a complete surprise. The veteran winger was able to practice again Wednesday, putting him on track to return to action Thursday against the Blues. However, due to the unpredictability of his lingering illness, Roussel's owners should plan on checking back prior to puck drop Thursday evening for confirmation on his status against St. Louis.

Roussel (illness) is expected to return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

Roussel has missed the Stars' last two games due to an illness, but he was able to participate in Tuesday's morning skate, which was the first indication he'd likely be available for the evening's matchup with Nashville. The 28-year-old winger, who has notched three goals and eight points in 25 contests this campaign, will occupy a bottom-six role against the Predators.
