Mathieu Roy

I have to preface this by saying I actually like Mathieu Roy. He's plucky. You can't help but cheer for the guy. The main problem is that he's just not that great. He's also pretty injury prone.

I wouldn't say he got eaten alive in his 13 games last year, and I think he could be an alright option for a seventh defenceman and will be able to compete for a spot with Jason Strudwick. Looking at the numbers though it seems that MacT believes Roy has limited use.

Projection: injury call up defenceman
Key Stats: Last among Oiler defenders in EVTOI and first among Quality of Teammates. Ranked 3 in defenders for GFON and GAON though.
