Roy scored four goals and added two assists for six points in two games last week, netting the winning goal in each of the Checkers’ season-opening victories.
As Charlotte began the 2018-19 regular season with a two-game visit to Rochester, Roy snapped a 2-2 late in the second period before chipping in another goal and an assist in the third to help the Checkers to a 6-2 victory on Friday night. In Saturday’s rematch, Roy again broke a 2-2 deadlock – this time with a shorthanded goal – and then tacked on a power-play marker as Charlotte defeated the Americans, 4-2.
A fourth-round pick by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2015 NHL Draft, Roy tallied 11 goals and 27 assists for 38 points in 70 games as a rookie with Charlotte last season, and added three assists in eight playoff games for the Checkers. The 21-year-old native of Amos, Que., also made his NHL debut last season, appearing in one game with the Hurricanes.
In recognition of being named the CCM/AHL Player of the Week, Roy will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Checkers home game.
