K-Wings add veteran forward Roy

KALAMAZOO, Mich. – The Kalamazoo Wings, ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, announced the signing of veteran forward Mathieu Roy for the 2020-21 season.

Roy, 33, returns to North America after playing five seasons in the Elite Ice Hockey League, most recently with the Glasgow Clan. The Amos, Quebec native posted 24 points (14g-10a) in 35 games for the Clan in 2019-20 after sitting out the 2018-19 campaign.

He served as captain of the ECHL’s Florida Everblades from 2011-14, and led the team to the Kelly Cup in 2011-12. The season after Florida won the Kelly Cup, Roy led the ECHL in goals (38) and points (89), was named to the All-ECHL First Team and was runner-up for the League's Most Valuable Player award. Across seven ECHL seasons, he compiled 337 points (149g-188a) and 610 penalty minutes in 446 games. Through 12 pro seasons, including five in Europe, Roy has skated in 689 pro games. He also tallied three points in five career American Hockey League contests.

Roy enters his 13th professional season in search of his fifth championship. After leaving the Everblades for England in 2014-15, Roy helped the Sheffield Steelers to three straight EIHL titles. He was also named to the All-EIHL First Team twice and All-EIHL Second Team once, winning the EIHL Player of the Year in 2014-15.
