Roy was originally drafted in the fifth round, 133rd overall, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers. His playing style is modeled after several players, including Marc-André Fleury and Rick DiPietro. He is of no relation to former NHL goaltender and current head coach Patrick Roy.
Roy was selected in the third round, 44th overall, by the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL)'s Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in the 2007 QMJHL Entry Draft. In his first season with Cape Breton, Roy recorded four shutouts and ultimately won the RDS Cup as the League's top rookie.
Roy then 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 the first game of the series.
Roy was ranked as the second-best North American goaltender available by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau going into the 2009 NHL Entry Draft in Montreal, and on June 27, he was selected by the Edmonton Oilers in the fifth round, 133rd overall.
Roy played for Canada at the 2011 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, along with goaltender 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 for the 2010–11 season, but struggled during the playoffs. In 2012, his rights were traded to the Baie-Comeau Drakkar.
On March 30, 2011, Roy signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Edmonton Oilers. On November 8, 2013, Roy was traded by the Oilers to the Calgary Flames along with Ladislav Šmíd in exchange for Roman Horák and Laurent Brossoit.
As a free agent, Roy opted to pursue a European career, and signed a one-year deal with Slovenian club, HDD Olimpija Ljubljana, a member of the Austrian Hockey League (EBEL), on July 30, 2015. After one year with Olimpija, he headed to fellow EBEL team EC VSV.
