Sabres trade Derek Roy to Dallas Stars for Steve Ott, Adam Pardy

The remake of the Buffalo Sabres picked up major momentum this evening when the team traded center Derek Roy to the Dallas Stars for forward Steve Ott and defenseman Adam Pardy.

Roy was the Sabres' perennial points leader until suffering a season-ending injury halfway through the 2010-11 season and sustaining a down year last season. The Sabres' second-round pick in 2001 played 549 games for Buffalo, recording 161 goals and 427 points.

The Sabres stated they wanted to add competitiveness to their lineup, and Ott brings that. The gritty 6-foot-, 190-pounder had 11 goals, 39 points and 156 penalty minutes in 74 games with Dallas last season. Dallas' first-round pick in the 2000 draft played 566 career games with the Stars, totaling 220 points and 1,170 penalty minutes.

Pardy is entering his fifth NHL season. The 6-4, 220-pounder spent three seasons with the Calgary Flames before joining the Stars in 2011-12. He has recorded 29 points (4+25) and 157 penalty minutes in 183 career games. The Sabres already had eight defensemen under contract for next season before acquiring Pardy.
