Blues sign centre Derek Roy to one-year contract, pending physical

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues signed centre Derek Roy to a one-year contract on Saturday.

St. Louis has been looking for a top centre since before the trade deadline and hopes to have found it in Roy, whose deal is done pending a physical, according to the team.

The 30-year-old split last season between the Dallas Stars and Vancouver Canucks and finished with seven goals and 21 assists. The five-foot-nine playmaker played the bulk of his NHL career with the Buffalo Sabres, where he had a career-high 81 points in 2007-08.

Roy's deal is reportedly worth US$4 million.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
