History

2011-12: Jeremy Roy skated for College Antoine-Girouard Gaulois in the Quebec midget AAA league as a 14-year-old. He scored 7 goals with 25 assists and 22 penalty minutes in 41 regular season games. College Antoine-Girouard reached the playoff semifinals before falling to Seminaire Saint-Francois. Roy scored 1 goal with 2 assists and 2 penalty minutes in 11 playoff games.

2012-13: Roy was an assistant captain for the Gaulois in his second season with College Antoine-Girouard and was selected to play in the Quebec Games U16 tournament. He scored 12 goals with 42 assists and 18 penalty minutes in 42 regular season games. College Antoine-Girouard reached the playoff semifinals, falling to Laval-Montreal, 2-1, in the decisive game of their best-of-seven series. Roy scored 4 goals with 11 assists and 6 penalty minutes in 13 playoff games. Roy was selected by Omaha in the 17th round (247th overall) in the 2013 USHL Entry Draft and was chosen by Sherbrooke in the first round (4th overall) in the 2013 QMJHL Entry Draft.

2013-14: Roy skated for Sherbrooke in the QMJHL and was a team caption for the Canada Quebec U17 team at the 2014 World Hockey Challenge. He scored 14 goals with 30 assists and was -29 with 23 penalty minutes in 64 regular season games for Sherbrooke. The Phoenix had the league’s worst record, winning just 16 games and missing the playoffs after finishing last in the West Division.

2014-15: Roy played for the Canada U18 team at the 2014 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament in August before returning to Sherbrooke and concluded the season skating for Canada’s bronze medal-winning squad at the 2015 U18 World Junior Championship. He led Sherbrooke defensemen in scoring with 5 goals and 38 assists in 46 regular season games, missing time in December and late in the season due to injury. He finished -2 with 37 penalty minutes. Sherbrooke reached the playoffs after finishing third in the West Division. Roy scored 1 goal with 4 assists and was -3 with no penalties in six playoff games. He scored 3 goals with 1 assist and was -6 with 2 penalty minutes skating for Canada in the 2014 WJC and was +8 with 3 assists and 4 penalty minutes in five games at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament. Canada defeated the Czech Republic, 6-2, in the gold medal game. Roy skated for Team Orr in the 2015 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game and was ranked 21st amongst North American skaters in the Central Scouting rankings and was selected by San Jose in the second round (31st overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Talent Analysis

Roy is an offensive defenseman with great vision and a deceivingly quick shot from the point. He was one of the QMJHL’s top defensemen in the 2014-15 season. He is by no means a horse on the blue line, able to physically overpower the opposition, but he utilizes good skating ability and hockey smarts in playing sound defensive hockey.

Future

Roy will skate in his first training camp with the Sharks before likely returning to Sherbrooke for his third QMJHL season in 2015-16. He is also a candidate to skate for the Canada U20 team at the World Juniors as an 18-year-old. Long-term Roy projects as a top-four skating defenseman capable of controlling the play with his puck moving ability and preventing scoring opportunities by reading the play.
