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.

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!— Antoine Roussel (@Rous_ant) August 1, 2013
If anyone was still on the fence about Roussel, they are surely on his side now after this classy move.
