Joshua Roy tallied 16 Goals and 44 points in 60 games for the Saint. John Sea Dogs in the 2019-20 season. Roy got off to a strong start to 2020-21 with Sea Dogs before being traded to the Sherbrooke Phoenix 15 games into the season. Joshua Roy is primarily a playmaker that has excellent vision, passing, and puckhandling skills; he is at his best when setting up along the half-boards on the power-play. His hockey sense is phenomenal; he knows exactly where to be on the ice, and what to do with the puck in the offensive zone. Joshua has high potential, but he must improve on some areas of his game to be a top 6 center in the NHL. The area of his game that needs the most improvement is his defensive zone play. Roy lacks quickness and straightaway speed, but he makes up for it with his tremendous hockey sense. Joshua Roy has massive potential as a playmaking center in the NHL, so I could see a team taking a chance on him late in the first round or early in the 2nd round.
A Talented Playmaking Center with excellent vision and hockey IQ.
