NHL.com Fantasy Insider Pete Jensen recently posted a list of centers worth considering in your fantasy hockey league, and Derek Roy's name is part of that list.

Here's what Jensen had to say about Roy, who is owned in only 22 percent of Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey Leagues.

"Roy charged into the break with points in four of five games (one goal, four assists) and sees a wealth of power-play minutes for a deep offensive team. The veteran center leads Blues forwards with 16 power-play points and is a steady multi-category producer. If the team's recent second-line combo of Roy, Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko holds true, members of that trio could pay dividends for the fantasy playoffs."

Through 55 games this season, Roy has nine goals and 27 assists (36 points). Of his nine goals, four have come on the power-play and two have been game-winners.
