Playing CareerEdit

Junior Playing CareerEdit

After arriving in Canada in 2006, Antoine played midget hockey for the Collège Charles-Lemoyne Riverains in Longueuil.

Later that season, he joined the Chicoutimi Saguenéens of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) where he played for four years.

Professional Playing CareerEdit

Undrafted in the NHL Entry Draft, Antoine signed an American Hockey League (AHL) contract with the Providence Bruins on August 9, 2010 where he played the 2010–11 season.

After being a healthy scratch for several Providence games, he was temporarily re-assigned to the Reading Royals of the ECHL, where he played in five games.

Antoine was not offered another contract by the Bruins, but was later invited to attend the Vancouver Canucks' prospect camp.

His performance there led to him signing a contract with the Chicago Wolves, which at the time were the Canucks' minor league affiliate in the AHL. He played for the Wolves for the 2011–12 season.

On July 2, 2012, Antoine signed a contract with the Dallas Stars. During the 2012–13 season, he split his time between Dallas and their AHL affiliate, the Texas Stars.

For the 2013–14 season, Antoine played with the Dallas Stars for the entire season, playing 81 games. On July 22, 2014, the Stars announced that he had signed a four-year, $8 million contract extension with the team.

International PlayEdit

Antoine competed in the 2012 IIHF World Championship, 2013 IIHF World Championship and 2014 IIHF World Championship as a member of the French national team.

At the end of the 2014 IIHF World Championship, he was selected as a Media All-Star after a very successful tournament, scoring 11 points in eight games.

Personal LifeEdit

Antoine was born in Roubaix, France. He first played rugby as a child, but he was released from his team after repeatedly running off the field during the heated summer practices.

As a result, his mother enrolled Antoine in hockey, deciding the cooler rink would benefit him.

At the age of 16, Antoine and his family moved to Canada, settling in Quebec. He holds Canadian citizenship.
