Well, that was unexpected

Derek Roy is playing for Bern of the Swiss league.

It just occurred to me to look him up in fantasy hockey, and that's what I learned. He had a PTO (wow, how the mighty have fallen) with the Caps but failed to impress, I guess, so left for greener pastures.

Didn't see that one coming, but he will likely do well there. It's just strange for me to think about. The European leagues were very popular among the random minor-league fellas I've known over the years, most of whom will never get a sniff at the NHL. So it's hard to wrap my brain around the idea of a guy who spent several years in the NHL playing there.

But again, he will probably do well there, so more power to him, I guess.
