Dallas (AFP) — French left wing Antoine Roussel has agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the National Hockey League’s Dallas Stars, the team announced Tuesday.

The deal, worth a reported $8 million, avoids a salary arbitration hearing between Roussel and the club.

The 24-year-old from Roubaix, who moved to Canada at age 16, had a career-best campaign last season with 14 goals and assists on 15 others over 81 games.

Roussel also ranked third in the NHL with 209 penalty minutes.

“Since coming into the NHL, Antoine has been a very effective and hard player for opposing teams to compete against,” Stars general manager Jim Nill said.

“His skill combined with his competitive grit create energy for our club that impacts our whole lineup.”

In his NHL career, Roussel has compiled 21 goals and set up 22 others over 120 games.

Roussel scored six goals and set up five others for France in their eighth-place finish at this year’s World Championships.

In an article published by the Beast on June 23, Sollenberger describes the property’s new landlord as a “marijuana retailer.”

Publicly, former President Donald Trump is taking credit for the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade and ultimately revoking women's right to legal abortions. But, behind closed doors, he reportedly is not thrilled about the ruling.

According to Rolling Stone, "privately, the former president is anxious about what the end of Roe, and the flood of extreme Republican state-level anti-abortion laws it will unleash, will mean for the GOP’s electoral prospects — and for his own."
