Dallas' Roussel Has Disappeared

News: Antoine Roussel, who was having a strong sophomore campaign until mid-January, has just one goal and one assist in the 28 games since January 18.
Analysis: It's a pretty incredible all-stop for Antoine Roussel. In the 44 games prior to this slump he had 11 goals and 11 assists, a pace of .5 points per game, which had been on track to best a solid 14-goal, 15-assist performance last season. Since those first 44 games, he's averaging .07 points per game. His shots have fallen off, too. He started the season averaging 1.55 shots per game and has fallen to 1.14 shots per game in the last 28 games. His ice time hasn't suffered greatly through most of the slump, but it's starting to and unless he finds his scoring touch, you can assume that his ice time is going to stay low.

Stars' Roussel Skates At Monday's Practice

News: Antoine Roussel skated at Monday's practice and is on track to return from his two-game suspension Tuesday against St. Louis, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Antoine Roussel was suspended two games for cross-checking Boston's Adam McQuaid last Tuesday. He sat out Friday's win over the Panthers and Saturday's loss to the Avalanche but is expected to return to action Tuesday in St. Louis after skating on his normal line with Cody Eakin and Ryan Garbutt at Monday's session.

Stars' Roussel Suspended For Cross-Check

News: Antoine Roussel was suspended two games Thursday for cross-checking Adam McQuaid in Tuesday's win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Suspensions are part of the risk you run with having Antoine Roussel on your team. He's a high-emotion player who takes a lot of penalties. It's worth a lot if your league scores PIM, but it could mean you lose him for a few games. He'll be eligible to return to the Stars' lineup Feb. 17 against the Blues.

Hearing With NHL On Tap For Stars' Roussel

News: Antoine Roussel will have a discipline hearing Thursday with the NHL Department of Player Safety for his illegal cross-check on the Bruins' Adam McQuaid during Tuesday's game, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Analysis: Antoine Roussel was ejected less than four minutes into the match for the dirty hit, which earned him a five-minute major penalty and 10-minute game misconduct. The Stars winger has shown a mean streak during his NHL career, as he was fined (but not suspended) earlier this season for punching a defenseless player. While the fact that Roussel's hearing will be over the phone rather than in-person suggests a lengthy banishment is off the table, it wouldn't be a surprise if he was suspended a couple games for his antics.

Stars' Roussel On Three-Game Streak

News: Antoine Roussel scored and registered two shots in Saturday's 7-1 win over Minnesota.
Analysis: Antoine Roussel has two goals and an assist over his three game point streak. He's also a plus-4 in that time. He's starting to provide value across categories, beyond the fairly reliable number of penalty minutes you're going to get with Roussel.

Roussel Adds Assist In Stars' Win

News: Antoine Roussel had an assist and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's win over Arizona.
Analysis: Antoine Roussel is providing what owners have hoped for to this point. He's taken a slight step forward in point production from last year's 14 goals and 15 assists. He's on track for 18 goals and 23 assists. Importantly he's getting all the penalty minutes owners hoped for. His 80 minutes on the season rank third in the NHL.

Stars' Roussel Tallies Empty-Net Goal

News: Antoine Roussel potted an empty-net goal -- his seventh marker of the season -- in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: The Stars' resident pest now has 16 points and 50 shots to go with his 62 PIMS, making him relevant in nearly all formats this season that count PIM. Antoine Roussel has four points in his last four games after being held off the scoresheet for the previous six, so owners may want to get him back in their lineups if they haven't done so already.

Stars' Roussel Contributes Two Assists

News: Antoine Roussel dished out a pair of assists in Saturday's win over the Devils.
Analysis: With 15 points (six goals) in 29 games, Antoine Roussel has been a pleasant surprise this season. On track for the first 40-point campaign of his NHL career, the left-winger is a solid secondary scorer in Dallas. Aside from a recent six-game pointless drought, Rousell has been fairly consistent thus far, recording at least one point in 14 of 29 games. With 62 PIM on the season, Roussel is worthy of a look in some deeper leagues.

Stars' Roussel Breaks Goal Drought

News: Antoine Roussel bagged a goal on one of his three shot attempts in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: The tally ended a 10-game stretch without a goal for the winger, dating all the way back to Nov. 15. Even so, Antoine Roussel still has a respectable 13 points in 28 games, and has supplemented that offense with 62 PIM, ranking fifth in the league in that category.

Stars' Roussel Gets Power-Play Assist

News: Antoine Roussel picked up a power-play assist and skated 19:05 in Tuesday's win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: That's three straight games with a helper for Antoine Roussel, and two of them have come on the man advantage, where he's now got the benefit of riding shotgun with Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn and Jason Spezza. He saw a full four minutes of power-play time Tuesday.

Stars' Roussel Gets Fined, Not Suspended

News: Antoine Roussel was fined, but not suspended for "punching an unsuspecting opponent," San Jose's Justin Braun.
Analysis: Good news for Antoine Roussel owners, especially since coach Lindy Ruff is high on Roussel right now and has added him to the team's top PP unit.

Stars' Roussel To Having Hearing For Punch

News: Antoine Roussel will have a hearing for a punch thrown at a defenseless player in Saturday's loss to San Jose.
Analysis: Antoine Roussel could see a couple of games for that punch, which was pretty dirty. He caught Sharks d-man Justin Braun in the face while a ref was holding Braun. Expect to lose Roussel for a couple of games. Bad timing for Roussel owners, as coach Ruff had just put Roussel on the top power play unit.

Roussel Getting Chance To Score For Dallas

News: Antoine Roussel had an assist, 14 penalty minutes, and a pair of shots in Saturday's loss to San Jose.
Analysis: Antoine Roussel has spent the last two games on the top power play unit. The Dallas PP has struggled, but he's on the ice with Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, and Jason Spezza -- that unit is going to find its touch. All the better if it's while Roussel is with them. It's a big chance to get a little extra production from a guy who will otherwise get you 20-30 points and a big pile of penalty minutes in fantasy.

Stars' Roussel Bags Goal In Defeat

News: Antoine Roussel registered his fourth goal of the season in Friday's loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Though Antoine Roussel isn't supplying huge hit totals yet (15 in 10 games), he's provided a hint of scoring (six points) to go along with his usual willingness to drop the gloves (27 PIM). He's one of the few hard-nosed fighters in the league capable of picking up some slack offensively, making Roussel more intriguing than most fourth-line scrappers.

Stars' Roussel Bags Goal In Defeat

News: Antoine Roussel tallied a goal in Saturday's loss to the Predators.
Analysis: Antoine Roussel, who was one of four Stars players to finish with a positive plus/minus rating on the evening, has a goal and assist through two games. As per usual, Roussel also displayed his chippiness on defense Saturday, accruing 14 penalty minutes on three infractions.
