2009-10: Kevin Roy was the leading scorer for Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts during his sophomore season. In 27 games he scored 12 goals with 16 assists.
2010-11: Roy led Deerfield Academy in scoring as a junior. In 18 games he scored 19 goals with 15 assists. Roy committed to playing college hockey at Brown in 2012-13 and was selected by the Lincoln Stars in the first round (eighth overall) of the 2011 USHL Entry Draft.
2011-12: Roy was named USHL Player of the Year in his first season with the Lincoln Stars. Roy led the league in both goals and assists – scoring 54 goals with 50 assists – and was plus-44 with 50 penalty minutes in 59 games for the Stars. Lincoln finished first in the Western Conference but were upset by Waterloo in the conference finals. In eight playoff games, Roy scored 7 goals with 3 assists and was minus-one with 4 penalty minutes. Roy was invited to the NHL Draft Combine and was ranked 78th amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2012 NHL Draft.
2012-13: Roy was the leading scorer for Northeastern as a freshman. Skating on a line with seniors Garrett Vermeersch and Vinny Saponari (Winnipeg), he scored 17 goals with 17 assists and was -9 with 24 penalty minutes in 29 games — missing the last five games of the season with an upper body injury. Roy was named MVP in the annual Beanpot Tournament – scoring all three goals in the Huskies 3-2 win over Boston University and scoring twice in the loss to Boston College in the championship game. The Huskies missed the Hockey East tournament; finishing last in the 10-team league.
Roy has been on the radar for a few years thanks to a YouTube clip of him showing off his stickhandling skills in a shootout contest when he was 13. Roy still has those great skills, and it showed in his first season in the NCAA. He is a creative player who can be a wizard with the puck, and is equally adept at scoring goals or setting them up. Roy does not have ideal size for the NHL, but if he can bulk up a bit without affecting his skill, he could make a serious run at an NHL roster spot someday.
Roy will be entering his sophomore season with Northeastern University this fall.
