Derek Roy is feeling good about his shoulder and great about the Stars.
While the 29-year-old center still hasn’t played a game for Dallas, he said Tuesday he’s happy with the trade that brought him to the Stars in July, and that he’s happy with the decision the team made to make him have shoulder surgery just a couple of weeks after the trade.
Roy has been working out in Frisco and also skating occasionally with the Stars alumni _ guys like Joe Nieuwendyk, Bob Bassen and Craig Ludwig. He is nearly 100 percent recovered from the surgery and is expected to go down to Cedar Park at the end of the week to work out with the Texas Stars. He will not play in games, because of the lockout, but he will get in some intese practices.
