Stars place Roy on IR

The Dallas Stars have placed center Derek Roy on injured reserve, retroactive to Jan. 24, due to a groin injury.

Roy has two assists in four games, but hasn't played since Jan. 24, when he sustained the injury. He'll miss his second game Monday when the Stars visit the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Roy was acquired in July from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for forward Steve Ott and defenseman Adam Pardy.

Quote of the Day

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
