Roussel was activated from the NHL's COVID-19 list Wednesday, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

Roussel is in the lineup Tuesday against Montreal, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

As usual, the 31-year-old Roussel has been a physical force with 17 hits, 23 PIM and two helpers in eight appearances this year.

Roussel had an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Oilers.
Roussel set up Adam Gaudette with a cross-ice feed in the third period for the Canucks' third goal of the game. That duo will likely spend a lot of the season together on the Canucks' third line. Roussel was limited to a career-low 13 points in 41 games last year, but the French winger starts 2020-21 in good health. He's just a year removed from a 31-point campaign and could push for 25 points this season.

The two-point effort snapped an eight-game point drought for Roussel. He's racked up 13 points, 54 shots, 43 hits and 43 PIM in 39 contests this year. The French winger isn't likely to generate much offense, and his physicality is also below his usual standard this year.
Roussel picked up an assist, two shots on net and two hits in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Blackhawks.
Roussel has three points over his last four games. The 30-year-old is up to 11 points, 39 PIM, 37 shots and 34 hits in 30 contests this season.

Roussel notched an assist and 14 PIM in Monday's 6-2 win over the Predators.
Roussel set up Jordie Benn's first-period tally. Then, in the third period, the winger mixed things up in a scrum with Yannick Weber and Jarred Tinordi. The French forward is up to 10 points, 39 PIM, 35 shots and 32 hits in 29 contests this season.
Roussel scored a power-play goal on three shots Thursday in a 4-2 loss to the Wild.
Roussel rounded out the scoring with 91 seconds remaining, collecting his sixth goal of the year. Oddly enough, it was the first career power-play tally in 505 NHL games for the 30-year-old.
