Kevin Roy staying NCAA course but not likely with Brown July 25, 2012 6:45 AM

Oh to be a teen aged phenom…..

Kevin Roy, the 19-year-old Anaheim Ducks draft pick, became a hot commodity after lighting up the USHL last year with a 54-goal, 104-point season.

Roy has long been coveted by his hometown Quebec Remparts, but has been verbally committed to attending Brown University. Sources have now informed TJHN that Roy is looking for a higher profile NCAA program. Although verbally committed to Brown, Ivy League schools do not sign National Letters of Intent. There has been a gentlemans agreement amoung schools concerning Ivy league commits, but it would not be forbidden by NCAA rules for schools to contact him and try to sign him.

The same sources are also telling TJHN that the search includes a package deal for his goaltender brother Derick Roy of the Eastern Junior Hockey Leagues South Shore Kings who had a 2.78 goals against average, and a .912 save percentage last season.

Roy, who is on the Canadian roster for the Canada – Russia Series, would most likely want to have a place to play nailed down prior to leaving for Russia. The Canada-Russia series begins Aug. 8, two weeks from Wednesday.

Nailing down an NCAA program with not just one but two scholarships available will not be an easy task. It is being speculated that the Roy family is only considering programs on the east coast.
