Stars F Antoine Roussel Ejected for Illegal Throat Check (Video)

Dallas Stars v Boston Bruins

Antoine Roussel of the Dallas Stars was ejected less than five minutes into their game against the Boston Bruins tonight, for a brutally illegal cross check to Adam McQuaid’s throat.

It appears that McQuaid attempted to cross check Roussel first, but was unsuccessful, giving Roussel the opportunity in which he took full advantage to retaliate.

Roussel may receive further penalty from the NHL, per his history of game misconduct we learn from CBS Sports.
