Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel will miss the rest of the season with the knee injury he suffered in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Rangers.

Roussel finishes his first campaign in Vancouver with a career-high 31 points (nine goals) in 65 games, finally topping the 30-point mark after coming within five points of doing so four times in six seasons with Dallas. He still has three seasons left on his contract after this one at a $3 million AAV.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Suffers lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel left Wednesday's game against the Rangers in the second period due to a lower-body injury and has been ruled out for the rest of the contest, Sportsnet's Irfaan Gaffar reports.

Roussel's leg bent under him awkwardly as he lost his balance on a move to the front of the net and fell into New York's Brendan Lemieux, who was assessed a dubious five-minute major on the play. Expect further updates on Roussel's status after the game, but know that his status for Friday's contest against the Devils and beyond is certainly in doubt.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Sees time on top line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel dished an assist and a hit in a 6-2 loss to the Golden Knights on Saturday.

Roussel was listed on the first line with Bo Horvat and the returning Jake Virtanen (ribs) for the contest, although he only skated 14:30. It's certainly a worthy promotion for the pesky winger, who set his career high at 30 points with the helper. He has 118 PIM and 87 hits in 64 appearances during his first season with the Canucks.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Pots eighth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel scored a goal on three shots in Wednesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Avalanche.

Roussel also did well defensively with a pair of blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in the contest. Roussel is up to 28 points in 59 games, just a point shy of matching his career high. He's made himself a winger of interest in a number of fantasy formats this year.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Gets green light Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (illness) will be in the lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Islanders, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

The French winger was able to fight off his symptoms and is slated to skate on the team's third line with Adam Gaudette and Markus Granlund. With 27 points, Roussel is already on pace to set career bests offensively and should hit those marks if he's able to continue skating with skilled linemates.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Illness may keep him out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel is questionable for Saturday's game against the Islanders due to an illness.

The agitating winger reportedly wasn't feeling well Saturday morning, but there's still hope from Canucks coach Travis Green that Roussel will be able to suit up. With the spotlight in Vancouver shining brightly on Calder Trophy favorite Elias Pettersson, third-line players like Roussel are being overlooked. However, with seven goals and 20 helpers through 56 games, he's actually well on his way to a career-best season offensively. Check back to see whether Roussel takes to the ice for pregame warmups. If he can't go, then perhaps Zach MacEwen will emerge from the press box.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Has modest three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel assisted on both of the Canucks' goals in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Coyotes.

Roussel has collected a goal and three assists in his last four outings, as well as eight points in 10 skates in February. With 27 points in 56 games to go with 112 PIM this season, the left wing has provided sneaky fantasy value in deeper formats in his first year with Vancouver.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Tallies breakaway goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel scored a goal on a game-high six shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Sharks.

He made the most of a breakout pass from defenseman Alex Biega to quickly tie the game after Timo Meier's power-play goal gave the Sharks a 1-0 lead in the first period. Roussel has 25 points in 55 games, as well as 70 shots. He is seeing an increased role with Sven Baertschi and Jake Virtanen out, and with three points in his last five games, the winger is making the most of it.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Tallies assist in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel picked up an assist in Thursday's shootout win over the Kings.

Roussel has six points in his past 10 contests, a scoring rate much higher than we're used to seeing. He has 24 points through 54 games this season, and is in line to crack the 30-point mark for the first time in his career. That's not his main contribution though, as he leads the NHL with 112 PIM.

February 3, 2019 01:52 AM
Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Tallies two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel scored a goal and an assist in a 5-1 victory against the Avalanche on Saturday.

Known for his prowess in the PIM category, Roussel posted his first multi-point game since Dec. 27. He has two goals and three points in the last three contests. Roussel has already passed his goals and points marks from last season, and he is on pace to set a new career high in the points category. He has six goals and 21 points in 47 games this season.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Scores game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel scored the game-winning goal over the Red Wings on Sunday.

It was just Roussel's fifth goal of the campaign, bringing him up to 19 points in 45 games. He's already surpassed last year's 17-point total, which he did in 73 games. He's having a nice bounce-back season, and provides great category coverage with 38 blocks, 60 hits and 98 PIM.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Enjoying month of December
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel scored and recorded an assist in Vancouver's 4-2 win over Edmonton on Thursday.

Roussel only has four goals and 17 points in 35 games this season. While his stat line won't blow anybody away, he's already matched his 2017-18 point total, doing so in 38 fewer games. The 29-year-old has been close to a point-a-game player in the month of December, collecting nine points in 12 games. Still, his lack of power-play ice time makes him a risky fantasy play most nights.

December 18, 2018 01:44 AM
Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Collects assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel picked up an assist in Sunday's win over Edmonton.

The point ends a three-game skid for Roussel, and brings him up to 14 points in 31 games this season. He's also racked up 69 PIM, which is the second highest amount in the NHL.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Multiple points in upset win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel dished out a pair of helpers in Thursday's 5-3 win over Nashville.

Roussel's battled a shoulder injury recently and hadn't been very effective when on the ice, mustering just two assists over his previous 11 games. The next order of business for the 29-year-old winger will be attempting to snap a goal drought that now sits at 13 games.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Not at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (undisclosed) wasn't a member of Monday's practice.

Roussel recently missed a game with a shoulder injury, but there's no word on that being the reason for his absence. He did suit up for the Canucks most recent game, picking up an assist against his former Stars on Saturday.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Gearing up for return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (shoulder) is preparing to play against his former team in the Stars on Saturday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Roussel was on the ice for pre-game warmups, indicating that he'll be fit to play against his old employer. He's up to three goals and five assists over 23 games in his typical middle-six role for the Canucks.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Hampered by shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel is considered day-to-day with a shoulder injury, Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province reports.

Roussel was unable to suit up for Thursday's game against the Golden Knights due to what is being described as a "nagging shoulder ailment," but his day-to-day tag suggests he could return as soon as Saturday against the Stars. If Roussel's unable to go, Tim Schaller will likely occupy his spot in the lineup for a second straight game.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Will miss Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (upper body) won't play in Thursday's game against Vegas.

Reportedly slowed by an upper-body injury, Roussel was a late scratch ahead of Thursday night's game. The 29-year-old will be re-evaluated Friday and could still play Saturday against the Stars.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Fined for biting incident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel has been assessed a $5,000 fine for biting Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic in Friday night's contest.

There's obviously no place for biting in the NHL, and the league's safety division decided to impose the maximum fine allowed under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement for Roussel, who received 18 PIM -- including a 10-minute game misconduct -- in the 4-0 road loss. This was the winger's first brush with the hockey law since joining the Canucks over the summer.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Takes bite out of Shark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel racked up 18 penalty minutes in Friday's 4-0 road loss to the Sharks. He was whistled for elbowing, delay of game, cross-checking and roughing, plus he had a game misconduct in the final minute.

If you were watching this game, you may have noticed that Roussel bit Sharks defenseman Marc-Edouard Vlasic on the hand. If not, here is the video, courtesy of Brodie Brazil from NBC Sports California. Not surprisingly, there is speculation that the NHL's Department of Player Safety will take a look at the incident to see if supplemental discipline is warranted for Roussel.
