Team Canada’s squad at the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 World Championship has so far had a successful run through the preliminary round and quarter-final, winning all five of their games with the semifinal match coming up on Saturday. Canada will face their North American rivals, Team USA, in that game.

While two players have performed at a high level offensively for Canada, much of the scoring has been spread across the lineup at this U18. One of the players chipping in on offense is forward Nicolas Roy, who has chipped in three goals, a +5 rating and 11 shots in five games. Roy plays for the Chicoutimi Sagueneens in the QMJHL.

Roy is eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft. He is ranked 45th among North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings after having been ranked 25th in the midterm list.

Hockey’s Future chatted with Roy at this tournament, a conversation featured in this HF video.
