Antoine Roussel - next french player in NHL?

While i was surfing on the Bruins website, i saw this guy ANTOINE ROUSSEL, born in Roubaix, France. After a little research i found out that he isn't drafted 4 full season with Chicoutimi.Apparentely he played with Rouen while his youth. Does anyone have any news or info about him?

He's been sent down to Providence in AHL.

He came as a walk on in the Sags organisation, catching the eye of the coaching staff during the camp.

Spent 4 years in the Q making himself a name. Richard Martel, the Sags Head coach said there were a lot of team interested in acquiring Roussel as a 19 years old. Was invited to the CBJ rookie camp last year, but was cut before the main camp. Went back to Chicoutimi and was named Team Captain in his last season of eligibility.

Was invited to the Bruins rookie camp and - suprising the staff - he was invited to the main camp. Was a late cut and is now with Providence where he made the team after the AHL camp.

He's got a good repution in Québec and I think the Bruins organisation liked pretty much his camp. Martel compared him to a quicker Steve Begin.

I honestly dont know if he'll ever play a NHL game, but being with the Bruins is a great thing. Claude Julien uses 4 lines and being described as a tireless worker with a great attitude, he is in the Boston mold.

I think he's playd in Rouen most of his minor hockey then went to Québec. He attended evaluation camps with the French national team in the past but I cant see him not being a regular from now on.
