Nicolas Roy News
Vegas Golden Knights forward Nicolas Roy is expected to join the second line for Friday's Game 5 against the Oilers. The Golden Knights have suffered a couple of heavy defeats in the last three games and head coach Bruce Cassidy has decided to switch things up a bit, with Michael Amadio getting scratched for the contest and Roy taking over his spot on the second line. Roy has been limited to fourth-line minutes, but he's collected all three of his points this postseason in the last four games and could now do even more damage in a bigger role.
Vegas Golden Knights forward Nicolas Roy was the only player to get the puck past Stuart Skinner in Wednesday's 4-1 defeat to Edmonton. He ruined Skinner's shutout bid 5:58 into the final frame. William Carrier and Shea Theodore had assists on the play. Roy now has points in three of the four games so far in the second round after managing none in the opening series versus Winnipeg. Depth scoring figures to be vital for the Golden Knights in the matchup as they try to outscore Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid enough to get to four wins first. After splitting the first four meetings, Roy and the Golden Knights have a chance to grab the lead in the series on home ice Friday.
Vegas Golden Knights forward Nicolas Roy was able to put a stop to a 13-game scoring drought on Monday, lifting the team to a 3-2 victory over Colorado with a pair of second-period goals. It's the first time since Nov. 25 that he lit the lamp. The 25-year-old was a regular scorer early in the campaign, but Roy was completely off form offensively in December and clearly has some work to do to get back on track. With that said, getting seven goals and eight assists in 37 games from a third-liner isn't a bad return at all. He's done his bit defensively as well, delivering 48 hits with 23 blocks.
Vegas Golden Knights forward Nicolas Roy (lower-body) will not travel with the team for their Saturday game in Edmonton. Roy has been deemed day-to-day by coach Bruce Cassidy. The 25-year-old was enjoying his best season to date, so hopefully he can return to the ice in short order. In 18 games played he has four goals and seven assists, and has also contributed 25 shots, 24 hits, and 11 blocked shots. Roy is technically on the fourth line, but is averaging over 15 minutes TOI per game, and has been given time on the powerplay and penalty kill as well. The Knights clearly trust him, and he could be worthy of a streamer in fantasy leagues in some situations.
