Dallas Stars forward Antoine Roussel is known for his tenacious style of play, but he is showing his fashionable side to promote Dallas-based men's clothier Mizzen+Main.
Roussel also revealed in an interview for the line's website how a love-at-first-sight encounter with his cat Django "Minou" Roussel made him a feline enthusiast, and talks about life as a new dad.
Roussel is lending his name for a line of his favorite picks dubbed "Antoine's Looks." Roussel liked the company because of its "great looks that fit perfectly," and that the clothes are made in the United States.
"It was really important to me to represent a company that is driven [to bring] everything to America," Roussel told the Mizzen+Main website. "This country has given me so much."
The Roubaix, France native, who also has Canadian citizenship, was undrafted and has missed only seven games since reaching the NHL with the Stars on Feb. 1, 2013. He has led Dallas in penalty minutes each of the past four seasons.
In this video, Roussel shows off some of his hockey skills in an Athlete Challenge.
Dallas has reached the Stanley Cup Playoffs in two of Roussel's four seasons there, and he likes the direction the Stars are headed.
