PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Happy Birthday to Port Chester’s André Roy!

André Roy, born in Port Chester, turns 39 on Saturday.

Roy, an American-born Canadian former professional ice hockey player, was born Feb. 8, 1975.

Roy was drafted by the Boston Bruins, 151st overall in the sixth round of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft and has also played for the Ottawa Senators, the Tampa Bay Lightning (where he won the Stanley Cup in 2004) and the Pittsburgh Penguins. During the 2006–07 season, Roy was placed on waivers by the Penguins and claimed by the Lightning. Roy was removed from the Tampa Bay Lightning official roster, after a fallout with former coach John Tortorella.

In an away game against the Flyers, Roy fought Riley Cote twice. After being knocked down from a punch in the latter fight, Roy made a "cutting throat" hand gesture toward Cote while on the bench. John Tortorella had to physically remove Roy from the bench.

On July 20, 2008, Roy signed with the Calgary Flames.
