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.

Stars rookie Roussel didn't seem to land any punches, and had his jersey covering his face pretty much the whole time. I guess you could say the Stars were 0-2 on the night. Check out the brawl...
FRISCO, Texas -- Loui Eriksson definitely knows it goes with the territory. As a goal scorer, sometimes it seems as if the opposing net is so wide open one could drive a Mack truck through the crease while there are other times where nothing a goal scorer does seems to result in the biscuit hitting the back of the basket.
Well, the veteran Stars forward is definitely experiencing...
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...
DALLAS-- A week ago Friday, all was well with the Dallas Stars. The club was fresh off a come-from-behind win at Vancouver where they trailed 3-1 midway through the second period before storming back for three unanswered to leave Rogers Center with a huge 4-3 win, their second in a three-game trip through Western Canada.
