QMJHL Roundup: Joshua Roy, Phoenix hand Armada their fourth straight loss

·2 min read

SHAWINIGAN, Que. — Forward Joshua Roy had a goal and an assist, and the Sherbrooke Phoenix doubled up the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 4-2 on Tuesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

The 17-year-old Roy, who was selected No. 1 overall in the 2019 QMJHL Draft and is eligible for the upcoming NHL Draft, has 15 goals and 27 points in 24 games to crack the top-five in league scoring.

Anthony Munroe-Boucher, Xavier Parent and Israel Mianscum rounded out the offence for the Phoenix (3-11-2).

Yaroslav Likhachev and Miguel Tourigny scored for the Armada (13-5-1), who are on a four-game slide.

Samuel Hlavaj made 26 saves for Sherbrooke while Charles-Edward Gravel stopped 31-of-35 shots for Blainville-Boisbriand.

Roy was a member of the Saint John Sea Dogs when the QMJHL shut down on Dec. 1 due to COVID-19 protocols, but a January trade saw him head to the Phoenix, who gave up three firsts and a second-round pick for him. He has six goals and 10 points in nine games with Sherbrooke since the season resumed for Quebec-based teams.

The Sea Dogs have not played a game since Nov. 18 as they await approval from the New Brunswick government to return to play.
