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

Roussel tallied a goal and added an assist in Friday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche.

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.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Assists in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. While he shouldn't be counted on for offense in season-long fantasy formats, his propensity for taking penalties could make him worth a look as a depth option in DFS.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Snags helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Notches late PPG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. Roussel is an experienced bottom-six winger but offers little fantasy appeal with just nine points in 27 games.

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

Roussel notched an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.

Roussel snapped a six-game point drought with the helper. The French winger is up to eight points, 27 shots and 26 hits through 21 appearances. After the All-Star break, Roussel is set to appear in his 500th NHL game when the Canucks host the Blues on Jan. 27.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Strikes quickly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel scored a goal on two shots, served three hits and added two PIM in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Rangers.

Roussel scored at 1:46 of the first period, snapping a four-game point drought. The 30-year-old winger has seven points, 21 shots on goal, 22 hits and 17 PIM through 14 games this year. He's never had a season above his current 0.5 points-per-game mark -- expect the Frenchman to slow down on offense a bit.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Bags power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel posted a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.

Roussel picked up the secondary helper on Jake Virtanen's goal during a lengthy 5-on-3 situation. The French winger isn't typically used on the power play -- he hadn't earned a point on special teams since 2016-17. Roussel has been highly productive since returning from a knee injury, with six points, 14 shots on goal and 13 hits in nine games.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Deposits opening tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel scored a goal, dished three hits and blocked two shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Golden Knights.

Roussel scored just 2:49 into the game, although his tally didn't have much impact by the end. The French winger has amassed four goals, an assist and 12 hits through eight contests this year.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Pots two goals against Sabres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel scored two goals on three shots, adding four hits, two PIM, one blocked shot and a plus-1 rating, in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win over the Sabres.

The veteran winger missed the first 28 games of the season due to offseason knee surgery, but he's made up for the lost time in a big way. Roussel now has three goals in two games since making his season debut while also rounding out his stat line with seven shots, six hits, two blocked shots, two PIM and a plus-3 rating. The 30-year-old has never scored more than 14 goals in a full season, however, so don't expect him to maintain this pace for long.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Scores in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (knee) potted a goal on four shots, dished two hits and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Senators.

Roussel scored just 1:50 into the game. He had spent the first two months of the season recovering from knee surgery, but the physical winger made a near-instant impact. Roussel produced 31 points, 118 PIM and 87 hits in a career year in 2018-19. He'll likely be limited to third-line minutes this season, but he can provide depth scoring in such a role.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (knee) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Senators.

Roussel, who has yet to play in the NHL this year after undergoing offseason knee surgery, recently completed a brief conditioning stint with AHL Utica, during which he notched one helper and four PIM in two games. The 30-year-old winger will occupy a bottom-six role during his season debut with the Canucks, skating with Adam Gaudette and Nikolay Goldobin on the team's third line against Ottawa.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Recalled from conditioning stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (knee) was recalled from his conditioning stint with AHL Utica but will not suit up for Sunday's game against Edmonton.

Roussel is still looking to make his NHL season debut after a serious knee injury in March. It looks like that debut should come sometime this week and possibly as early as Tuesday against Ottawa. The 5-foot-11 winger scored a career-high 31 points in 65 games last season.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Heads down for conditioning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canucks assigned Roussel (knee) to AHL Utica for conditioning purposes.

Roussel is entering the final step to recover from a knee injury he suffered in March. The 30-year-old winger can spend up to 14 days in the minors before returning to the Canucks, but he likely won't last that long if he shows he's back to full speed. Roussel scored nine goals, 31 points and 118 PIM over 65 games last season.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Sheds no-contact sweater
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (knee) practiced in a normal jersey Monday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

Roussel skated as an extra in practice, and there's no indication that his late-December recovery target has been pushed up. At the very least, it means that Roussel is on track to return before the calendar flips to 2020. The 29-year-old will be a welcomed addition when he's ready, as Roussel posted 31 points over 65 games last year.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: No return until December
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (knee) isn't expected to return until late December, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

General manager Jim Benning indicated Roussel may start practicing soon, but it appears the winger will be out for at least another month. Roussel is continuing to make progress in his return from a knee injury suffered in March, but there's a long way to go before he's back in game action.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Out until late November
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to general manager Jim Benning, Roussel (knee) has been skating on his own, but he isn't expected to be cleared to return to game action until late November, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Roussel has already missed Vancouver's first two games of the 2019-20 campaign and will likely miss at least 20 more before getting the green light to make his season debut. Once healthy, the 29-year-old Frenchman will slot into a bottom-six role for the Canucks. Roussel has only surpassed the 30-point mark once during his seven-year career, but he has a knack for racking up PIM, making him a decent plug-and-play option in formats that reward the rough stuff.

Canucks' Antoine Roussel: Starting season on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roussel (knee) is expected to start the year on injured reserve, the team announced Thursday.

Roussel suffered a knee injury in mid-March and it appears his problem will continue to linger into the new season. Despite playing in 65 games last year, the winger still managed to set a new career high in points (31) while primarily filling a bottom-six role. Once healthy, the French international should be capable of hitting the 25-point mark, as he has done five times in his career.

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.
