Stephane Roy was born June 29, 1967 in Ste-Foy, Quebec. The 1st choice, 51st overall selection of the Minnesota North Stars in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft, Roy was a graduate of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Stephane, who is also the brother of four time Stanley Cup champion Patrick Roy, goaltender for the Colorado Avalanche spent four seasons in the QMJHL with Chicoutimi and in Granby where he and Patrick we're teammates in 1984-85.
During the 1985-86 season, Roy played ten games with Canada's National Team and did so again the following year, while also competing with Canada's National Junior Team at the 1987 World Junior Championships in Piestany, Czechoslovakia. The 1987 WJC marked the suspension of both Canada and the Soviet Union during their round robin game in which both teams we're involved in a bench-clearing brawl.
In 1987-88, Stephane Roy made his NHL debut with the Minnesota North Stars, playing in 12 games and scoring his first and only NHL goal. Even though he played in a dozen games with the North Stars, Roy spent the majority of the season with International Hockey League's Kalamazoo Wings.
Although he began the 1988-89 season with Kalamazoo, Minnesota traded Roy to the Quebec Nordiques for future considerations early into the season, finishing the year with the Nordiques American Hockey League affiliate in Halifax.
Following a short stay with the Nordiques organisation, Roy joined the French National Hockey Association's 3rd Division HC Nice where he played for one season before rejoining Canada's National Team in 1990-91. For the next three years Roy was a member of Canada's National Team before returning to Europe in 1993.
A member of EHC Olten in Switzerland for two years, Roy returned to North America in 1995 and to the Central Hockey League's Memphis River Kings. Roy played a year and half with Memphis before joining the Western Professional Hockey League's Anchorage Aces midway through the 1996-97 season.
During the off-season in 1996, Stephane Roy suited up for the Denver Dare Devils of Roller Hockey International. In 1997-98, he played in a handful of games with the CHL's Macon Whoopee before deciding to head back close to home to play with the Quebec Aces of the Quebec Semi-Pro Hockey League.
Roy returned to minor pro hockey in 1998-99 with the WPHL's Abilene Aviators, however his return only lasted for one season as he returned home and became a member of the Quebec Central Senior Hockey League's La Pocatiere Seigneurs.
Throughout his hockey career, Stephane Roy has played in 12 NHL games, scoring one goal.
