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

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
