Frederick Roy(91) retired

Frederick Roy91Undrafted 23-year old, would be third year left wing Frederick Roy(91), son of Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy, has decided it’s time to hang up the skates.

Having signed a pair of successive AHL contracts with Rochester Americans and being without a solid deal going into 2014/2015, he probably was unwilling to move down to the ECHL to see what could materialize.

Also, possible there were little offers from Europe as well.

Regardless, the somewhat small 5’10” 170 lbs. forward with a ton of well-documented feistines (he’s credited with 10 fighting majors last season) stops playing much too soon.

He showed much potential scoring and checking line promise, especially in his fourth season in the QMJHL with Quebec Ramparts.

The word on his wiki suggests he’s decided it’s time to go back to school.

We still wish him well and of course, he comes from good hockey stock so we probably haven’t heard the last of him.
