RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Mathieu Roy.
Roy is a surly, 27-year-old journeyman with just 61 NHL games under his belt. He'll perform his role as a depth guy in the AHL for as long as he remains on North American ice.
Depth defenseman scored 2-15-17 with 120 PIMs lst season in 59 games with AHL Springfield.
Roy has had a difficult time staying healthy in his short career so far. His offensive potential is limited at best and therefore not someone you should be targeting in your draft.
Roy saw time with the Oilers this season when injuries started to hit the team. He's a physical defenseman with minimal offensive ability, so don't expect to see him too often in 2007-08 unless injuries strike again.
With the Oilers in need of defensemen, Roy could make the team if he has a strong camp. He's known more for his physical play than his offense, but he is capable of chipping in some points.
