He was also award the Raymond Lagace Trophy as the QMHJL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year.
2008-09: The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles (QMJHL) net-minder posted an impressive 35-12-3 record in his second year with the club. He also posted a personal best 2.84 goals against average and a .905 save percentage. His three shutouts nearly matched his total of four from last season.
2010-11: Roy had a season of extreme highs and lows – both with Acadie-Bathurst and in net for the silver medal-winning Canada squad at the 2011 U20 World Junior Championship. In 45 games with Acadie-Bathurst he was 29-13-2 with 2 shutouts and had a 2.79 GAA and .911 save percentage as the Titan finished second behind Saint John in the Maritimes division. In the playoffs against Victoriaville he appeared in three games and was 0-2 with a 6.88 GAA and .739 save percentage. Roy started three games for Canada and was 2-1, including a win over eventual gold medal winning Russia, but did not start any playoff round games following a 6-5 overtime loss to Sweden. He finished with a 3.57 GAA and .875 save percentage for the tournament. Roy signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Edmonton in March 2011.
2011-12: Roy appeared in three games with Edmonton's AHL affiliate Oklahoma City and shared the goaltending duties with Vancouver prospect Thomas Heemskerk for the ECHL's Stockton Thunder in his first pro season. Roy made his only start of the season with the Barons on March13th after seeing action in two relief appearances and stopped 36 of 38 shots in a 5-2 win over Rockford. He finished with a 2.34 goals against and .937 save percentage with Oklahoma City. He appeared in a team-high 40 games for the Thunder and was 16-23 with five losses in overtime and 4 shutouts and had a 2.49 goals against and .925 save percentage. Stockton reached the ECHL playoffs after finishing third in the Pacific Division. Roy was 4-4 in eight playoff games with a 2.46 goals against and .919 save percentage.
Exceptionally quick laterally as well as a quick glove, Roy is an incredibly athletic goalie and when he is on his game he's as good as they come. The problem that has plagued him the past few seasons seems to be more between the ears than between the pipes. He's prone to meltdowns and stretches of ineffective, often terrible play, which can be a death blow in the pros. There's an immense amount of natural ability, he has all the tools, it's just a matter of developing the necessary consistency now that he's a professional.
Roy will play his second pro season at the AHL level in Oklahoma City as the back-up to Yann Danis but could see time again in the ECHL if he can't play at the same level as last season.
