Sabres sign Roy to AHL deal

BUFFALO — Undrafted winger Frederick Roy, an invitee to the Sabres’ summer development camp, has officially signed an AHL contract.

The 21-year-old, the son of Hall of Fame goalie Patrick Roy, played junior beside Sabres prospect Mikhail Grigorenko last season, scoring 92 points with the Quebec Remparts.

“He’s an interesting player aside from having played with Mikhail,” Sabres general manager Darcy Regier said Thursday. “He comes from an underdog position and has a personality and a feistiness and a never-give-up-type attitude, and … that expression ‘never underestimate the human spirit,’ he’s a bad kid to bet against.

“I think those guys, they somehow find ways to the highest possible level. Where that’ll be for someone like him, who knows? They have a way of bringing other way with them, because people respect the work ethic, they respect the attitude and they’re fun guys to hang out with.”
