After number change, Stars’ Roussel offers to buy fans new jerseys

  • Arun Morace

Antoine Roussel wore #60 for the Dallas Stars last year. But, after former #21 Loui Eriksson was traded to Boston in July (and even after Roussel pledged to keep his #60), Roussel decided to switch to Eriksson’s old sweater number- which also happens to be Roussel’s birthday (Nov. 21, 1989).

However, this change irked some fans who had bought Roussel’s number, after he become a fan-favorite as a rookie last year with his tenacious, feisty style of play. Below is a screenshot of a Twitter exchange Roussel had with a fan about the number change- which ended with Roussel promising to cover the charge of any fans who wanted to buy his new #21 to replace the old #60 Roussel jerseys.
