Stars place Roy on IR

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

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.
