Dallas Stars rookie Antoine Roussel can’t be serious rushing Vancouver’s Zack Kassian to instigate a brawl while wearing a visor. And you don’t even man up and throw off the helmet during the fight? So it’s fair for you to throw bombs at a guy whose face is exposed while your nose is hiding behind a wall? Give credit to mountain man Kassian for continuing to throw bombs at the Frenchman. Here’s the thing about Roussel, he’s a fighter. He knows the unwritten rules. The guy had 177 PIM last year in the AHL. It’s even more embarrassing when you charge wearing a visor and still lose a fight.   Filed under: Hockey Fights

Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian is listed as 6’3″ 205, while Dallas Stars rookie forward Antoine Roussel is listed as 5’11″ 170.  Roussel skated at Kassian full-speed and had the advantage early on, even knocking Kassian down, but once Kassian got back up he was pissed off and he went to work, just obliterating Roussel.  I give Roussel some credit for going after...
