Antoine Roussel (upper body) has been activated from the injured reserve list.

Roussel was previously called a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest. His activation might not be confirmation he'll play so much as Dallas preparing for the possibility. Jamie Benn was put on the IR list to balance things out.

Antoine Roussel (upper body) is regarded as a game-time decision on Wednesday.

Antoine Roussel (upper body) might be available to play Wednesday.

"He looks like he could be a player," coach Lindy Ruff said after Tuesday's practice. "Felt good today, better than yesterday. I just spoke with him and it's a decision he wants to make tomorrow to see how he feels after today's practice, so he's a guy that's probable for us." Roussel has been sidelined since Dec. 20.
Jan 3 - 2:46 PM

Antoine Roussel (upper body) fully participated in Monday's practice.

Roussel skated on a line with Jason Spezza and Tyler Seguin, but you shouldn't read too much into that because he was likely just keeping that spot warm for the absent Jamie Benn (foot). Either way, Roussel is getting pretty close to returning.

Roussel has five goals, 17 points, and 87 penalty minutes in 34 games this season. He brings a nice blend of points and penalty minutes to your fantasy lineup.

Antoine Roussel is the proud owner of a two-game point streak thanks to his helper in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Flyers.

The helper gives him 11 on the season and 16 points. The misconduct and slashing major he picked up for 15 PIMs gives him 85 on the season, and potentially a suspension. The latter has yet to be determined.

Antoine Roussel extended his point streak to six games with both a goal and an assist during Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to Vancouver.

Roussel got another unsportsmanlike penalty in the third when he went after Jake Muzzin.
