Hurricanes Sign Defenseman Mathieu Roy
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has signed defenseman Mathieu Roy (MA-tyew WAH) to a one-year contract. The deal will pay Roy $600,000 on the NHL level or $125,000 on the American Hockey League (AHL) level, with a guarantee of at least $150,000.

"We wanted to add more depth to our defense," said Rutherford. "Mathieu is an experienced player who is capable of contributing at the NHL level or in the AHL with Charlotte."

Roy, 28, split last season between the NHL and AHL, skating in four NHL games with the Tampa Bay Lightning. He played 45 games in the AHL with Norfolk, totaling four goals and 18 assists (22 points) and earning a plus-9 rating. The St-Martin de Beuace, Que., native also played in six Calder Cup playoff games for the Admirals, earning one assist.

Originally drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the seventh round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Roy (6’2”, 210 lbs.) has skated in 65 career NHL games with Edmonton, Columbus and Tampa Bay, totaling 13 points (1g, 11a) and 76 penalty minutes. He has scored 20 goals and earned 97 assists (117 points) in 301 career AHL games. Roy’s career stats are below.
