Derek Roy hasn't done much skating following off-season shoulder surgery, but he is still on track to return in November.
"I haven't skated in a while," he said. "I am going to start skating in three weeks or a month, and get that back up to speed, keep rehabbing the shoulder and move forward." The Stars and Roy made the decision to opt for surgery after he was acquired from Buffalo in July to ensure that he plays at the highest level he can with his new team. He will counted on to ease the loss of Mike Ribeiro as the club's second-line center.
