Unless you want to argue that hockey players sweat more but I'm pretty sure it's the same.
In any event, it's all water weight, which is regained before the next games game through drinking and eating.
Roy weighted 165lbs when he won the Stanley Cup as the skinny skinny goalie in 1986. He was a good 205-210lbs+ later in his carreer.
