A professional essay for Antoine Roussel

MISE À DAY

The Philadelphia Flyers have given forward Antoine Roussel a professional tryout for the 2022-23 National Hockey League season. 

“I'm very happy, it's good news, said the 32-year-old veteran to Le Quotidien on Sunday.

“It's a team that we had targeted to try to get a contract and I think they have room. It's exciting and it's a great opportunity.”

Last year, with the Arizona Coyotes, Roussel had eight points, including four goals, in 53 games. He had previously played for the Vancouver Canucks and the Dallas Stars.

In 607 games on the Bettman circuit, he tallied 197 points, including 85 goals.
