But the psychologist in Roy realizes, two months shy of his 29th birthday and in his third complete season in the AHL, he might have reached the point in his career where he’ll forever be labelled a minor-leaguer.
“I’ve played, so I know I can play,” the Laval Rocket forward said after Thursday’s practice at Place Bell. “If I were to never play again in the NHL, at least I played. That’s always going to be in my back pocket.
“I’m not putting an X on it, but there’s chances … you come to an age, there’s younger guys. It’s a reality. If that’s so, so be it. I’ll give it my best, wherever I’m at.”
Despite being only 5-foot-9 and 174 pounds, Roy was drafted 97th overall by the Anaheim Ducks in 2012 — his selection coming after four standout college seasons at Northeastern University in Boston, where the Greenfield Park native graduated with a psychology degree.
