Antoine Roussel hopes to build off the success he had with Radek Faksa and Ales Hemsky last year.
"I really hope we are going to start together," Roussel said. "I think it is a great combination of skill, power, and aggressiveness. I like to play with those two guys. It is fun, but I will play anywhere they want me to play." The trio played well together down the stretch in 2015-16 and they were solid for Dallas in the playoffs as well. Roussel has had a busy off-season, as he got married and their first child, a boy, is due in about one month. Aug 5 - 5:08 PM

Antoine Roussel scored a big goal for the Stars in Game 1 against St. Louis, but he hurt his team with costly penalties in the second game of the series.

He amassed six minutes in the sin bin on Sunday and the Blues scored on two of those opportunities, which included the game winner in overtime.

Antoine Roussel potted one of the oddest goals you’ll ever see in the Stars’ 2-1 Game 2 win against the Wild.

Wild defenseman Marco Scandella tried to clear the puck from behind the net. Instead, it hit Stars forward Ales Hemsky’s skate toward Roussel, who was also behind the Wild net. He tried to settle the puck with his skate, but the puck deflected and floated on top of Dubnyk, who pressed up against the net. But the puck crossed the line. Originally, it was ruled no goal. The NHL’s situation room ruled it a good goal upon review: "The goal frame shall be considered in its proper position when at least a portion of the flexible peg(s) are still inside both the goal post and the hole in the ice." It gave the Stars a 1-0 lead.
