Roe info

Garrett Roe, the Kings’ seventh-round pick, had 18 goals and 27 assists in 39 games as a freshman for St. Cloud State. He is 20 years old and spent time in the junior-level USHL.

Roe grew up in the hockey non-hotbed of Vienna, Va., a suburb of Washington, D.C.

Bob Motzko, St. Cloud State coach, said this about Roe on the College Hockey News website last November:

“(Roe) is a whale of a competitor. He brings a high energy level every night, and he’s been finding a way to put it all together. He’s been a big part of the success of our forward group, and if we keep making progress the way we have (the last two weeks) we’ll be a tough team to beat.”

“(Roe’s) a tremendous student. We just got our grade reports, and he’s got straight A’s going. He’s a hard-working, likeable kid … the prototypical student athlete.”

Perhaps most importantly, Roe is from St. Cloud State, the alma mater of Kings communications director (and part-time radio personality) Mike Kalinowski.
