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 in; Dustin Jeffrey out.
Roussel was a healthy scratch last night, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Rangers.
