The Capitals have signed Derek Roy to a professional tryout.

Roy split time with the Predators and Oilers in 2014-15. He didn’t produce in Nashville, but was great after being acquired by Edmonton. In 46 games with the Oilers, the 32-year-old registered 11 goals and 11 assists. He will look to beat out the likes of Jay Beagle and Michael Latta for the third or fourth line centre role in Washington.

The Oilers have acquired Derek Roy from the Predators for Mark Arcobello.

Roy, 31, who cleared waivers today, is now heading to the lowly Oilers. The Oilers did not want to add another contract so that is why they passed on him on waivers and then dealt Arcobello for him. Roy makes $400K (per NHLNumbers) more per year than Arcobello, but also has much more experience. He had 10 points (1G / 9A) in 26 games with the Predators.

The Predators have placed Derek Roy on waivers.

Roy has served as a healthy scratch in the last three games and has now been placed on waivers. He has 10 points (1G / 9A) in 26 games this season. It would be surprising if a team like Edmonton or another team in need of a veteran pivot does not claim Roy.

The Predators have signed Derek Roy to a one-year, $1 million deal.

With Mike Fisher out for 4-6 months with a ruptured Achilles, the Predators have signed two veteran playmakers today, Roy and Mike Riberio. Roy had nine goals and 28 assists (37 points) in 75 games with the Blues last season. Roy is undersized at 5-foot-9 but still has the ability to be a productive playmaker with the Preds this season.

DAL trades Derek Roy to VAN for Kevin Connauton and a 2nd round pick.

The Canucks were desperately seeking another centre with Ryan Kesler out with a broken foot. Roy has four goals and 18 assists in 30 games with the Stars this season. He should continue to be a solid fantasy player with his new team.

Stars center Derek Roy (groin) will not play Friday. Gulutzan said he hopes Roy, who did not practice Thursday, will be ready early next week.

Roy will miss his 4th straight game tonight, and looks like his 5th tomorrow as well. The Stars hope to have him back next week but that still is tentative. The Stars called up Antoine Roussel on Thursday to fill in for Roy and he will make his NHL debut tonight.
