The Dallas Stars have avoided arbitration with forward Antoine Roussel, inking the 24-year-old to a four-year deal.

The deal carries an annual average value of $2 million. Roussel will earn $1.6 million in 2013-14 and will get a $200,000 raise in each subsequent year of the contract.

"Since coming into the NHL, Antoine has been a very effective and hard player for opposing teams to compete against," said general manager Jim Nill in a statement. "His skill combined with his competitive grit create energy for our club that impacts our whole lineup." 

The French-born left winger scored 14 goals and added 15 assists in 81 games with the Stars in 2013-14.

Originally signed as an undrafted free agent, Roussel has appeared in 120 career games with the Stars, scoring 21 goals and adding 21 assists.
