Antoine Roussel makes huge impact vs. CHI | 12/03/2013 11:10 PM
NewsAntoine Roussel angered the Chicago Blackhawks and anchored the Dallas Stars in a 4-3 win on Tuesday.
ImpactRoussel scored the game-winner on a penalty shot and already made an impact on the game before that, collecting seven PIM and three hits. Even if his recent scoring dries up (three goals, one assist in four games), he does other valuable things, most obviously shown in 70 PIM. At absolute minimum, he's a guy to watch in leagues with "gritty" categories.

NewsAntoine Roussel and the rest of the Dallas Stars' fourth line carried the mail on Tuesday, fueling a 6-3 win against the Anaheim Ducks.
ImpactIf 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.

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.
