Roy signed a professional tryout contract with the Capitals on Monday.
EDGE Analysis
The Capitals will take a look at the veteran forward during training camp and the preseason and see if he can fit into a bottom-six role. Roy's ability to play both center and wing should bolster his claim to an Opening Night roster spot, especially if more inexperienced younger options like Tom Wilson, Michael Latta, and Stanislav Galiev struggle in the preseason. A former 60-point scorer for the Sabres, Roy was limited to 12 goals and 20 assists over 72 games with the Predators and Oilers a season ago.
