2010-11: Undrafted QMJHL-grad Mathieu Tousignant ended up in the American League full-time in 2010-11. He had no trouble topping career bests in goals (10), assists (13) and points (23).

2011-12: Tousignant skated in 35 games for Dallas AHL affiliate Texas in his third pro season – shuffling in and out of the lineup and then missing the rest of the season after a hit from Oklahoma's Kirill Tulupov (EDM) in a late February game. Playing primarily an energy, checking line forward role for Texas; he finished with 32 penalty minutes and minus-four with 2 goals and 5 assist. Texas missed the AHL playoffs after finishing last in the West Division.
An enthusiastic forechecker, Tousignant leaves it all out on the ice every night. Never the most skilled player, he makes up for it with sheer determination, doing whatever is asked of him, from blocking shots, to throwing hits to driving to the net. He had decent puck skills and makes smart decisions with the puck, but his lack of skating ability necessitates his Johnny Hustle style.
Is expected to return to Texas in 2012-13. He had his role usurped a bit by the emergence of the older Ryan Garbutt.
