from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,
Derek Roy has reached a point in his NHL career where big things are expected daily. He’s also reached a point where he can deliver.
Roy is a fixture on the Buffalo Sabres’ score sheet, but that’s nothing new. The center led the team in points last season, averaging a shade more than one per game. He’s back on a similar tear. It raises the question: Does Roy expect to be on the score sheet every night?
“Yeah,” he said Tuesday. “The coaching staff expects that of me, I expect that of myself, my teammates expect that from me. That’s what I’m here for.
“Everyone’s a piece of the puzzle, and my job is to make plays, score goals, play defense and log a lot of minutes — play well consistently game in and game out. That’s what I’m trying to do every night.”
