2007-08: Roe completed a stellar freshman season at St. Cloud State, where he finished second in the nation in rookie scoring with 45 points (18 goals, 27 assists) and earned a spot on the WCHA All-Rookie Team. Roe was one of the WCHA’s most consistent point producers all season long. On December 8 against the University of Denver, Roe moved into second place all-time in the program’s history for consecutive games with a point (13), surpassing the 12 that former Husky Mark Hartigan set back in 2001-02.
2008-09: Although the team did not make the NCAA hockey tournament, Roe maintained his offensive production from his freshman year, having scored 48 points in 38 games and acting as a leader for St. Cloud State. Mentioned as a dark horse candidate for the Hobey Baker, Roe earned the attention of his piers this season as only a sophomore. His 48 points was tops on the team and amongst the leaders in college hockey.
2009-10: In his junior season with St. Cloud State Roe posted 20 goals, 29 assists, and 65 PIM in 41 games.
What Roe lacks in size, makes with great instincts and creativity, and an excellent burst of speed. One area where he really excelled this season at SCSU was on face-offs. Roe’s size and quickness allows him to exploit open spaces effectively, particularly in creating or finishing plays. He has the ability to make those around him better too. Roe is can be elusive and is difficult to contain.
One of Roe’s best assets are his hands. He is blessed with soft yet quick hands. He is very poised and patient with the puck, but what sets him apart from many collegiate rookies is his great decisions with it. He is a superb passer, and is able to make something out of nothing. His shots are hard, quick and fairly accurate. He does a very good job of picking his spots and is very strong around the net.
Roe can play all three forward positions, but spends most of his time at center.
