Roy is a skilled puckhandler who has good touch on his passes and shows the ability to make plays through heavy physical contact. He has a solid frame and he uses it effectively to drive to the net. He has a lethal snap shot, with a quick release and the ability to get it off under pressure. Roy is also a terrific passer, who uses wonderful anticipation and a sublime touch to place pucks at the perfect spot. He displayed an encouraging tenacity along the board and a great puck protection despite his unfilled frame. He displays great awareness in all three zones, particularly in the offensive end. He uses anticipation and strong positioning over hounding puck carriers to create turnovers. He has excellent vision and shows high-end puck protection while surveying his options in the offensive end. He supports his defenders well on the backcheck and in the defensive zone, pressuring players closely and doing well to switch checks after scrambles. He isn’t afraid to engage physically but is more likely to make stick checks or timely defensive reads. He reads and processes information very quickly on breakouts, allowing him to find outlets promptly. He excels at weaving through sticks and pressure to find the right passing lanes thanks to nifty edge work, fantastic spacial recognition, and lightning-quick hands. His cycle play is very impressive, as he floats around dangerous areas as a constant scoring threat and shows his complete skillset in tight. Roy stands out for his excellent instinctive positioning, being able to jump on rebounds without decent quickness and sneaking his way behind the defense. While he works the cycle well with simple decision-making and slick hands, he could use more urgency and explosiveness in his skating to be more effective off the rush. He’s a smooth skater but his stride is very upright and he doesn’t get much power from each stride, limiting his acceleration and top-end speed. He needs to have a lower center of gravity in-stride, as it seems he only bears down when he sniffs a scoring opportunity or one-on-one challenge. He will need to improve his shooting power to be a threat from outside but his wicked scoring touch and remarkably accurate wrist shot already allows him to bury high-danger chances with precision or even thread the needle from tough angles.
