    I’m excited to see how Roy does.

  2. Racki says:

    Yah, me too. He could be a big piece of our future. The World Juniors could go a long way in making for a very confident goaltender too. I hope he gets the starting role and hangs on to it!

  3. chucker says:

    Definitely agree. I hope he really rocks. It would be amazing to see a true blue goalie prospect in our prospects list.

  4. zackman35 says:

    It’ll be great to see Roy but I’m equally or almost more interested to see how Hamilton plays, he’s been rippin’ it up in the dub. And Petry may get the call up soon, as per ON (post in general comments).
