Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jean-Yves Roy
Jean-Yves Roy was born February 17, 1969 in Rosemere, Quebec. A member of the University of Maine Black Bears for three seasons, Roy was a member of the 1990 Hockey East All-Rookie Team and the 1990 East Second All-American Team during his first season at Maine.

In his second season with the Black Bears, Roy was a Hockey East First Team All-Star, NCAA East First All-American Team and NCAA Championship All-Tournament Team before entering his final season where he finished as an NCAA East First All-American Team and a Hockey East Second Team All-Star.

Following a successful career at the University of Maine, Roy joined the Canadian National Team once the 1991-92 NCAA schedule was over and returned the following year before signing as a free agent with the New York Rangers. Roy played in 23 games with the National Team before joining the Rangers American Hockey League affiliate in Binghamton for the majority of the season.

The 1993-94 season saw Roy return to Binghamton while playing in handful of games with the Canadian National Team before becoming a member of Canada's Silver Medal Olympic team at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehamer, Norway.

Although he spent the majority of the 1994-95 season in Binghamton, Roy made his NHL debut with the Rangers during the 94-95 season, playing in three games and scoring his first NHL goal.

Prior to the 1995-96 season, the Rangers traded Roy to the Ottawa Senators where he played in four games before spending the better part of his season with the Senators AHL affiliate in Prince Edward Island.

Released by Ottawa following the 1995-96 season, the Boston Bruins signed Roy as a free agent where he played in a career high 52 games with the Bruins, finishing the season with 25 points. Even though he spent the majority of the season with Boston, Roy did spend some time with the Bruins AHL affiliate in Providence.

Following a career high in games played in 1996-97, Roy could only manage to play in two games with the Bruins in 1997-98 while spending the majority of the season in Providence. When the 1998-99 season came around, Jean-Yves Roy became a member of Alpenliga's and Austria's VSV Villach before rejoining Canada's National Team for a handful of games.

In 99-2000, Roy joined Kolner Haie of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga, leading them to the league finals against the München Barons where they fell short, three games to one.

Throughout his career, Jean-Yves Roy has played in 61 NHL games, scoring 12 goals while adding 16 assists for 28 points.
