One of his eyes appears to be nearly shut, but it looks like Antoine Roussel will play for the Vancouver Canucks today, in Game 3 of their series against the Minnesota Wild.

Roussel, who took a puck to the head last game, is set to skate on a line with Brandon Sutter and Jake Virtanen. Zack MacEwen will draw in for Micheal Ferland, who has left the team following an injury in Game 2.
Adam Gaudette and Olli Juolevi both suited up for warmup according to multiple reports, but it looks like neither will play. We won’t know for sure until game time though.
