Roe to Austria 7/15

Another Adirondack Phantom is headed overseas.

Forward Garrett Roe, who spent the first two seasons of his professional career in Glens Falls, has signed with EC Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Hockey League, the team announced Monday.

"Excited for new opportunity!! Thanks to @NHLFlyers and @PhantomsHockey for the past 2 years," Roe wrote on his Twitter page Monday morning. "Unbelievable fans but time for new chapter."

Of Adirondack's 12 unrestricted free agents, five have already signed overseas. Only one, center Rob Bordson, re-signed with the Phantoms. Center Ian Slater went to the ECHL. Five are still unsigned.

Roe was an eighth-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Kings in 2004, but never signed with the club. After a four-year collegiate career at St. Cloud State, he inked one-year American Hockey League deals with the Phantoms for the 2011-12 and 2012-13, netting 20 goals and 66 points in 129 games.

Roe had 26 points in 57 games last season, battling with injuries after the lockout ended. By signing in the top hockey league in Austria, the 25-year-old becomes the latest Phantom to cross the pond.

Defenseman Andreas Lilja and goaltender Scott Munroe have signed to play in Sweden, goalie Brian Boucher is headed to Switzerland and defenseman Jeff Dimmen has signed a deal to play in Asia.

The new contract comes about two weeks after Roe got married.
