Playing careerEdit

As a youth, Roy played in the 2005 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament with a minor ice hockey team from Saint-Laurent.[1]

Roy attended Northeastern University, where he skated with the Northeastern Huskies men's ice hockey team since the 2012–13 season. In his freshman season Roy was honoured when he was named to the 2012–13 Hockey East All-Rookie Team. The following season he was named to the 2013–14 Hockey East Second All-Star Team, and in his junior year he was named to the 2014–15 Hockey East First All-Star Team. He scored a hat trick in his first-ever Beanpot Tournament game as a freshman in 2013. Roy's brother, Derick Roy, also played at Northeastern as a goaltender.[2]

On April 8, 2016, the Anaheim Ducks announced Roy signed his first professional contract on a two-year entry-level contract with the team.[3]

During the 2017–18 season, Roy was recalled from AHL affiliate, the San Diego Gulls, and made his NHL debut with the Ducks against the Vancouver Canucks on November 9, 2017,[4] He scored his first NHL goal against the Boston Bruins on November 15, 2017.[5]

On July 4, 2019, having left the Ducks as a free agent, Roy signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Florida Panthers.[6]
