Playing career[edit]

A stand out at Ferris State University, Roach has played for several teams after his outstanding college career including stints in the IHL, NLA, AHL, and currently plays in the DEL. Roach made his NHL debut with the St. Louis Blues in the 2005–06 season, registering 6 penalty minutes against the Detroit Red Wings in their home opener at Joe Louis Arena.
