There is speculation that Derek Roy will soon sign a contract with an NHL team.

That's not saying much. Apparently there is one team in the east and one in the west that are interested in Roy's services. Roy was terrible in 2013-14 with only 37 points in 75 games, far below his .77 points per game career production.
