2020 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Points in three straight games

Roy notched an assist, three hits and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Canadiens in Game 5.
ANALYSIS
Roy's high-sticking penalty in the second period led to the Canadiens' third goal. He partially made up for it with a faceoff win to set up Max Pacioretty's third-period tally, but the Golden Knights came up short Tuesday. Roy has been solid with two goals and a helper to build a modest three-game point streak. He's at nine points, 23 shots on net, 54 hits and six PIM through 18 playoff appearances.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2015
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.
