Olivier Roy (French pronunciation: [ʁwa]; born July 12, 1991) is a Canadian ice hockey goaltender currently playing with the Abbotsford Heat in the American Hockey League as a prospect for the Calgary Flames organization of the National Hockey League. Roy was drafted in the 5th round (133rd overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers. His playing style is modeled after several players, including Marc-Andre Fleury and Rick DiPietro. He is not related to retired Canadian goaltender Patrick Roy.
Olivier Roy was selected in the 3rd round, 44th overall in the 2007 QMJHL Entry Draft by the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. In his first season with Cape Breton, Roy took the league by storm, recording four shutouts and winning the RDS Cup as the league's top rookie.
Roy played for Team Quebec in the 2008 ADT Canada-Russia Challenge, and was named Team Quebec’s Player of the Game in their 5-3 win over Team Russia in Game One.
He was ranked as the second-best North American goaltender available by the NHL Central Scouting Services going into the 2009 NHL Entry Draft in Montreal. On June 27, 2009, he was selected by the Edmonton Oilers in the fifth round (133rd overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
Roy played for Team Canada at the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championships along with Mark Visentin, and started the opening game of the tournament against Russia. After three seasons with Cape Breton, Roy was traded to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan in the QMJHL for the 2010-11 season, but struggled during the playoffs. In 2012, his rights were traded to the Baie-Comeau Drakkar.
