Roussel (lower body) was traded Friday to Arizona along with Jay Beagle, Loui Eriksson, a 2021 first-round pick, a 2022 second-round pick and a 2023 seventh-round pick from Vancouver in exchange for Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Conor Garland, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. In addition, the Coyotes will retain a portion of Ekman-Larsson's salary. Roussel, Beagle and Eriksson will combine to cost $12 million against the cap next year in what is essentially a massive salary dump for the Canucks. In 35 games last year, the 31-year-old Roussel managed a meager four points and figures to slot into a fourth-line role, assuming he's even in the lineup and not serving as a healthy scratch.
Roussel (lower body) will be sidelined for a couple of weeks. Roussel left early during Tuesday's matchup against Toronto. He has just one goal and three assists through 35 appearances this year.
Roussel (lower body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Maple Leafs, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports. Roussel was injured in the first period of Tuesday's contest. If he can't get back in action for Thursday's game versus the Senators, Jay Beagle or Marc Michaelis could enter the lineup in a bottom-six role.
Roussel was activated from the NHL's COVID-19 list Wednesday, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports. Roussel will be available for Friday's game versus the Oilers, which will be the team's first appearance since March 24. The 31-year-old Roussel has posted four points and 62 hits across 33 games this season.
Roussel was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Roussel joins a growing list of Canucks in the protocol -- seven of their players are currently listed. The 31-year-old Roussel has four points through 33 games this year.
