Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Antoine Roussel
Antoine Roussel was born on November 21, 1989 in Roubaix, France. At the age of sixteen Roussel and his family moved to Canada where he entered the Quebec Major Junior League to played for the Chicoutimi Sagueneens.

Undrafted by an NHL club, Roussel made his professional debut during the 2010-11 season. He would suit up for both the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League and the Reading Royals of the east coast league.

On October 2, 2011, Roussel inked a deal with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL. He would appear in 61 games for the club during the 2011-12 season, racking up 177 minutes in penalties.

On July 2, 2012, Roussel, again a free agent, signed with the Dallas Stars. With the NHL mired in a work stoppage, he began the season in the AHL. When play resumed at the NHL level, Roussel cracked the Stars lineup. He would appear in 39 games for the club in his first big league season, scoring seven times and adding seven assists, while playing with a physical edge.

As a member of the Stars, Roussel would emerge as one of the league's premier agitators and most willing pugilists. In 2013-14, he recorded a career-high 14 goals and his 209 penalty minutes were the third highest total in the league.

Roussel would appear in 80 games for the Stars during the 2015-16 season, scoring 13 times and adding a career-high-equaling 29 points.

In the summer of 2018, as an unrestricted free agent, the gritty winger signed with the Vancouver Canucks.
