ROY RETURNS TO THE BARONS FROM STOCKTON

By Josh Evans, OKC Barons

The Edmonton Oilers assigned goaltender Olivier Roy to the Barons from the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL, Barons General Manager Bill Scott announced today.
 
Roy, a 6-0, 180-pounder from Amqui, Quebec, has a 13-17-4 record with Stockton, a 2.41 goals against average, .927 save percentage and four shutouts.  His save percentage is good for third in the ECHL and he's second in shutouts.  
 
This marks his third assignment to the Barons this season.  He was assigned to Oklahoma City December 17 and served as the backup for the Barons' two games against the Charlotte Checkers in Charlotte. He returned to the Barons from Feb. 20-March 1 and appeared in one game, a relief effort at Charlotte Feb. 24 where he allowed two goals in 29 minutes while not receiving a decision.

Roy was selected in the 5th round (133rd overall) by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

The Barons make their only visit of the season to Chicago on Sunday, March 4, to face the Wolves in a 4 p.m. game. Sunday's game can be heard on  96.1 FM KXY or on a pay-per-view basis via AHLLive.com.
