Matt Roik (born November 17, 1979) is from Dunnville, ON is a professional lacrosse goaltender who has played in the National Lacrosse League. Roik most recently played for the Toronto Rock, and has also played for the Washington Stealth, San Jose Stealth, Chicago Shamrox, Philadelphia Wings, Anaheim Storm, and New Jersey Storm.
Roik was selected with the final pick (72nd overall) of the 1999 NLL Entry Draft by the Toronto Rock, but was subsequently traded to the New Jersey Storm. He played two seasons in New Jersey, and stayed with the organization as they moved to Anaheim. After two seasons in Anaheim, the Storm folded, and Roik was acquired by the San Jose Stealth in the Anaheim dispersal draft. Before ever playing with the Stealth, Roik was dealt to the Philadelphia Wings in exchange for the sixth pick in the 2005 draft.
Roik played two seasons in Philadelphia before being traded once again, this time to the Chicago Shamrox in March 2008. On August 29, 2008, Roik was part of a blockbuster trade, going to San Jose in return for All-Star goalie Anthony Cosmo.
Roik has been named the NLL's Defensive Player of the Week five times:
- Week 5 -- 2012
- Week 1 -- 2006
- Week 14 -- 2005 (also named "Overall" Player of the Week)
- Week 1 -- 2003
- Week 14 -- 2002
While with the Wings, Roik was named as the Wings' "Grassroots Marketing Coordinator" in an effort to grow new fan support and increase ticket sales.
