Sabres deal centre Roy to Dallas for forward Ott, defenceman Pardy

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have traded centre Derek Roy to the Dallas Stars for forward Steve Ott and defenceman Adam Pardy.

Roy scored 17 goals and added 27 assists in 80 games with the Sabres in 2011-12. His best season was in 2007-08, when he had 32 goals and 49 assists.

Ott, a known agitator, had 11 goals, 28 assists and 156 penalty minutes in 74 games with the Stars last season.

Pardy, a six-foot-four, 220-pound blue-liner, had three assists and 16 penalty minutes in 36 games with Dallas.

Roy will be counted on to replace some of the offence Dallas lost when it traded Mike Ribiero to the Washington Capitals at the 2012 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
