7th year net minder Olivier Roy(35) switches things up after two campaigns in Erstebank Eishockey Liga to DEL2 signing with Eispiraten Crimmitschau for 2017/2018.

He helped HDD Olimpija Ljubljana win the 2016 Slovenian Championship in his first year outside of North American hockey posting an incredible 0.29 GAA and .988 SV%.

It wasn’t his first title though as he picked up the 2014 Kelly Cup with Alaska Aces after a trade sent him from draft team Edmonton Oilers to Calgary Flames‘ system, where he was reassigned down to the ECHL.

He spent one more season in the league with Idaho Steelheads before deciding to pursue opportunities elsewhere.

The recently turned 26-year old should do well in Germany’s tier 2 league and might even be in line to win a third champs trophy.

Olivier Roy(38) Oklahoma City Barons


Edmonton Oilers‘ 5th round pick in the 2009 draft (#133 overall), goaltender Olivier Roy(38) had himself a pretty sparkling sophomore season spending most of his time in the AHL with Oklahoma City Barons.

He started to get reassigned to the ECHL Stockton Thunder with more frequency towards the back third of the season and played in 22 Kelly Cup Playoff games backstopping them all the way to the Finals.

Injured during game 4, he had to sit on the sidelines for the last contest before his team bowed out but put up a very impressive streak 0f 7-2 with a 1.21 GAA and .961 SV% to propel his squad into the postseason.

Then his 12-7 mark helped push the team to the last round of the playoffs, beating a pair of teams with better regular season records.

Almost ironically the 6′ 180 lbs. backstop also played in 22 AHL games. He ended with a 9-9-1 mark and a 2.77 GAA and .902 SV%.

He turns 22-years old this summer and be on the final season of his 3-year entry level deal. His pretty impressive performance should net him a look between the pipes for the parent club in the upcoming campaign.

In the meantime though, he was reassigned back up to join the Barons‘ practice squad to continue to gain experience in their playoff push.
