25-Year-Old CenterC
Vegas Golden Knights
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Roy established himself as a regular for the Golden Knights last season, logging 15 points, 52 shots on goal and 50 hits in 50 contests while mainly seeing third-line minutes. He added nine points and 57 hits in 19 playoff games, which is a good sign going forward. Entering 2021-22, Roy looks like the preferred option as Vegas' third-line center, and the Golden Knights' still-concerning lack of depth down the middle could lead to him earning some top-six minutes later in the year. At 24 years old, the fourth-round pick from 2015 could be in line for a breakout campaign. A 30-point, 100-hit campaign isn't out of the question, although Roy will be fighting an uphill battle if he doesn't earn a power-play role. Read Past Outlooks

Roy notched an assist, a plus-3 rating, two PIM and two shots on goal in Friday's 7-4 win over the Blues.
ANALYSIS
Roy took a big step forward in 2021-22, ending with 15 goals and 24 assists in 78 contests. The 25-year-old's ability to stay in the lineup earned him extra opportunities as many other Golden Knights lost time to injuries. Roy added 85 hits and 51 PIM while seeing most of his time in a middle-six role. Should the Golden Knights move on from Reilly Smith (knee) in the offseason, Roy could be near the top of the list to replace him on the second line full-time next year.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
2015
Roy was in and out of the Vegas lineup through 2019-20, earning 10 points and adding 39 hits in 28 games. He also posted 22 points in 27 outings with AHL Chicago, but it's safe to say his time in the minors has likely come to a close. Roy projects as a third-line option for the Golden Knights in 2020-21, mostly likely skating with Cody Glass and Alex Tuch. With the Golden Knights expected to have one of the deeper offenses in the West Division, Roy could have some sneaky fantasy value in deeper formats. There's potential for 20-plus points and 80 hits if the 23-year-old maintains an everyday role.
Roy was dealt to Vegas in an offseason trade, and the former Hurricanes prospect will look to make the Golden Knights out of camp. While Roy has yet to score a point in seven career NHL appearances, the 22-year-old center has great size at 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds, making him a contender for a bottom-six role. His fantasy upside is limited even if he sticks with Vegas, however, as Roy hasn't even been a major scorer at the AHL level, with 74 points in 141 games.
Roy enjoyed a very productive rookie season for the AHL's Charlotte Checkers last season, finishing ninth in team scoring with 38 points (11 goals, 27 assists). The 21-year-old Roy has established himself as a solid, two-way center who is very responsible in his own zone but can also chip in offensively when needed. Although the Canes remain very thin at center and have a need for a guy like Roy, it seems likely that he will open the upcoming 2018-19 season back in Charlotte.
Signed a three-year contract with the Hurricanes in April of 2016.
