Kings' Matt Roy: Logs shorthanded assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy notched a shorthanded assist in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.

Roy had the secondary helper on an Adrian Kempe goal in the second period. The assist was Roy's first point in five games since he returned from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. The 26-year-old blueliner is at 10 points, 52 shots on net, 50 blocked shots and 48 hits through 35 contests as a second-pairing defenseman.

Kings' Matt Roy: Expected to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy (not injury related) is expected to be in Tuesday's lineup against Anaheim, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

Roy has missed the last seven games after he was placed on the NHL's COVID-19 protocols list earlier this month. The 26-year-old blueliner has nine points in 30 games this season and should slide back into a bottom-four role Tuesday.

Kings' Matt Roy: Removed from protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy cleared the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Sunday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

Roy will begin practicing, and he could return to the lineup as soon as Tuesday's matchup versus the Ducks. The Kings are 13-12-5 with Roy in the lineup and 3-8-1 without him in the fold, so his presence would be a boost to the Kings' blue line. Roy has accrued nine points through 30 NHL games, so he's not fantasy-relevant outside of deep formats.

Kings' Matt Roy: On non-roster list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy (COVID-19 protocol) was placed on the non-roster list Saturday, per CapFriendly.

This is a paper move for the Kings while Roy is in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. There is no timeline for his return currently.

Kings' Matt Roy: In protocol, out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Roy won't be available for Saturday's game versus the Sharks. There's no clear timetable for his return because we don't know whether he tested positive or was simply a close contact to an infected person. The 26-year-old has averaged nearly 20 minutes per game this year, recording nine points over 30 appearances.

Kings' Matt Roy: Scores quickly in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy scored a goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Golden Knights.

Roy scored one minute into the game, but that was the extent of the Kings' offense against Vegas goalie Robin Lehner. The 26-year-old Roy has scored twice in the last three games. He's up to nine points, 44 shots, 38 hits, 38 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 28 appearances overall.

Kings' Matt Roy: Lights lamp in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Sharks.

Roy deposited his first goal of the year at 17:31 of the second period to tie the game at 1-1. The 26-year-old blueliner has eight points, 41 shots on net, 35 blocked shots and 33 hits through 26 contests this season. Roy should continue to hold down a steady role among the Kings' defense corps, but his lack of scoring this year won't entice many fantasy managers.

Kings' Matt Roy: Inks three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy signed a three-year contract with the Kings worth $3.15 million annually Sunday, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.

Roy is now signed through the 2023-24 campaign. The 26-year-old has played a key role on the Kings' blue line this season, totaling seven assists and 38 shots through 24 games while averaging more than 19 minutes.

Kings' Matt Roy: Pockets helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy notched an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

Roy ended a three-game point drought with his helper on a Trevor Moore goal in the second period. The 26-year-old Roy is up to seven assists, 38 shots on goal, 33 hits and 30 blocked shots through 24 contests this year. His scoring rate is a bit too low to be viable in most fantasy formats.

Kings' Matt Roy: Assists in three straight outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy posted a power-play assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Ducks.

Roy had the secondary helper on an Anze Kopitar tally in the second period. The 26-year-old Roy has picked up the pace on the scoresheet with assists in three straight games. He's at six helpers, 37 shots on net, 29 hits and 24 blocked shots with a plus-5 rating through 20 contests. Expect the Michigan native to continue to play on the second pairing.

Kings' Matt Roy: Garners helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy posted an assist, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Monday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Ducks.

Roy had the secondary helper on Adrian Kempe's equalizing tally in the third period. The 26-year-old Roy hasn't found much offense in 2020-21, as he's up to five assists in 19 games. He's gotten on the scoresheet in consecutive outings, but the Michigan native's fantasy value is mainly limited to deep formats. He's contributed a plus-5 rating, 36 shots on net, 27 hits and 21 blocked shots.

Kings' Matt Roy: Picks up assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy notched an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blues.

Roy snapped an 11-game point drought with his helper on Matt Luff's game-tying goal in the second period. The 26-year-old Roy has struggled since suffering an upper-body injury versus the Wild on Jan. 28. He's been limited to four assists, 34 shots on net, 27 hits and 19 blocked shots in 18 appearances.

Kings' Matt Roy: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy (upper body) posted two shots on goal, two hits and a pair of blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Wild.

Roy was hurt against the Wild on Jan. 28 when he was boarded by Kevin Fiala. The 25-year-old Roy stepped into a second-pairing role Tuesday, playing 20:53 in the contest. The Michigan native has three helpers, 16 shots on net, 17 hits and a plus-3 rating in nine outings this season.

Kings' Matt Roy: Set to return Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy (upper body) will be activated from injured reserve to play in Tuesday's game versus the Wild, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

Roy will crack the lineup for the first time since Jan. 28. The 25-year-old dished out three assists and 15 hits over the first eight games. He's counted on for his defensive work more than his offensive contributions, though.

Kings' Matt Roy: Skates in non-contact jersey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy (upper body) was on the ice in a non-contact jersey Wednesday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Roy's return doesn't necessarily appear to be imminent, but he's clearly trending in the right direction. The 25-year-old blueliner, who picked up three helpers in eight games before sustaining an upper-body injury, will return to a top-four role whenever he's given the green light.

February 7, 2021 03:08 PM
Kings' Matt Roy: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Jon Rosen of Fox Sports West reports.

The transaction is retroactive to Jan. 28, so Roy can be activated at any time. Austin Strand and Tobias Bjornfot have both been added to the active roster to add depth on the blue line during Roy's absence.

January 31, 2021 04:56 PM
Kings' Matt Roy: Expected to miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Todd McLellan said Sunday that Roy (upper body) will miss extended time, Lisa Dillman of The Athletic reports.

Sean Walker (face) was given the same timeline, although there's nothing concrete with either player. Austin Strand and Mark Alt likely will replace the two defensemen in the lineup for the time being.

Kings' Matt Roy: Hurt in Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy (upper body) was injured in the second period of Thursday's game versus the Wild, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.

Roy was boarded by Kevin Fiala and needed help getting off the ice. Fiala received a major penalty and a game misconduct. Per Pierce head coach Todd McLellan believes Roy will be able to travel with the Kings back to Los Angeles. The defenseman's status for Tuesday's game against the Ducks is unclear.

Kings' Matt Roy: Collects helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy posted an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Blues.

Roy snagged the secondary helper on Adrian Kempe's second-period marker. The 25-year-old Roy has two assists, 10 shots on goal, nine hits and a plus-2 rating through five contests. He generated 18 points and a plus-16 rating in 70 outings last year for a Kings team that often lost -- he's a steady and physical defender with a little scoring touch.

Kings' Matt Roy: Gathers helper in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roy produced an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Wild.

Roy had the secondary helper on Andreas Athanasiou's second-period tally. In 2019-20, Roy earned a respectable 18 points in 70 appearances. He added 132 hits and 100 blocked shots -- the 25-year-old blueliner has developed into a well-rounded rearguard. While he's not likely to see much power-play time, Roy can have some value as defensive depth in deeper fantasy formats.
