With San Diego Gulls training camp underway, the team has invited both Alex Dostie and Jeremy Roy on professional tryouts. Learn more about each one.
While Trevor Zegras and Jamie Drysdale are attracting all of the attention at San Diego Gulls’ training camp, the team brought in two players on professional tryouts. Alex Dostie is already familiar with the Gulls and the Anaheim Ducks organization, drafted in the fourth round of the 2016 NHL Draft.
Dostie, 23, played out his three-year entry-level contract scoring a combined 16 goals and 29 points in 118 AHL games. He also had cups of coffee with the Utah Grizzlies and Tulsa Oilers of the ECHL in the 17-18 and 18-19 seasons. Last year, Dostie set career-bests in several categories, notably tallying 15 points in 40 games.
Dostie scored a dazzling 14 goals with Tulsa and 24 points in 20 playoff games after the 18-19 regular season.

The Gulls are also taking a look at defenseman Jeremy Roy – a former second-round pick in 2015 by the San Jose Sharks. Roy has yet to play in an NHL game and was not given a qualifying offer in October, allowing him to pursue other opportunities.
He had a strong 18-19 season with the San Jose Barracuda of the AHL, scoring six goals and 15 assists in 58 games. But he failed to build off that season, scoring just one goal and eight points in 35 games last year.
Both players are low-risk, high-reward candidates, especially Roy, who could eventually work his way up to Anaheim’s taxi squad roster.
