André Roy (born February 8, 1975) is an American-born Canadian former professional ice hockey player.

Playing career[edit]

Roy was drafted by the Boston Bruins, 151st overall in the sixth round of the 1994 NHL Entry Draft and has also played for the Ottawa Senators, the Tampa Bay Lightning (where he won the Stanley Cup in 2004), the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Calgary Flames. During the 2006–2007 season, Roy was placed on waivers by the Penguins and claimed by the Lightning, where he was a popular, though seldom used, enforcer. Roy was removed from the Tampa Bay Lightning official roster, after a fallout with then-coach John Tortorella. In an away game against the Philadelphia Flyers, Roy fought Riley Cote twice. After being knocked down from a punch in the latter fight, Roy made a "cutting throat" hand gesture toward Cote while on the bench. Tortorella had to physically remove Roy from the bench. For the rest of the 2007-08 season, Roy was a healthy scratch. On July 20, 2008, Roy signed with the Calgary Flames.

In February 2009, Los Angeles Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi raised eyebrows by singling out Roy as a "one-dimensional player." Said Lombardi, "So who's the one-dimensional player? André Roy from Calgary, maybe. They dressed him the other night. He's a battleship. He played, what, two minutes? So, okay, there's one, but I'd like to know how many of those guys there really are."[1]

Personal[edit]

André's has two brothers, Marc and Kevin. Although born in Port Chester, New York, André was raised in Saint-Jérôme, Quebec and speaks fluent French. André played his minor league hockey in the QMJHL.

After winning the Stanley Cup in 2004, Roy used his day with the Cup to present an engagement ring to his future wife, Karine Labelle. They married on July 23, 2005 and have a daughter, Maelie.
