Derek Roy named to Canadian Olympic team

He may have been cut from the 2008 team, but Derek Roy is heading to the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Congratulations, Derek!

Holy Poop Batman! That is fantastic.

Derek is still one of my most favourite recent Rangers and hated what happened to him in the NHL....breaking his leg was the icing on the cake pretty much. He just never caught on anywhere else after Buffalo.

Did anyone watch the reruns on Rogers over Christmas and he had "the shift" where he pretty much single handedly killed off a 2 man advantage? A very fond memory! That and the big hug I got from him when he visited for Memorial Cup in 2008.

I hated his diving but thankfully Deboer drove that out of him.

Taychuck- No question! I remember our GM at the time (MacDonald) saying,following the draft, that Roy will,"lift people out of their seats"with his moves and,indeed, MacDonald was right on.I was often left speechless after watching Derek scoring a goal. Without a doubt, one of the most exciting Rangers to ever lace up skates.Many have fond memories of Roy while with the Rangers and I wish good things for him.

Yes caught the re-runs. Was great to see it again. Some pretty intense games - especially vs Plymouth. The 67's Adam Smith was one brute !
