Antoine Roussel became a fan favorite for the Dallas Stars during his first season with the team, and along with his new stardom in the NHL came the jersey sales with the No. 60 on it and the budding hockey player even promised fans back in March he planned on keeping his number.
That was until No.21 came available after Loui Eriksson was traded to Boston in July, a number that Roussel wanted due to his birthday (Nov. 21, 1989), and one fan on Twitter took the time to call out the young Star.
.@Rous_ant You lied to me, Antoine. I thought we had a deal…..
Roussel, in typical hockey hospitality fashion, wanted to make things right for his fans and has promised to cover the charge of any fans who want to buy his new No. 21 sweater to replace his old No. 60 one.
2/3 @oconnor9sean so for those who bought my jersey with 60 last year, I’ll cover the change for 21, which is my BirthDay date!
