Nicolas Roy was born to parents Nick Roy and Lisa Laplante on 5 February 1997. Nick and Lisa went to the public University in Quebec City Canada.
The NHL star and his family have a history of hockey involvement, as his sister played on a women's hockey team and had a brief stint in the game.
While playing in the QMAAA, Nick and Lisa were present to support their son as he was named the unanimous first-overall choice in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) draft.
Similarly, Roy, who currently plays for the Vegas Golden Knights, was selected 96th overall by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
Amid this, he made his international debut with Team Canada Quebec at the 2014 U17 World Hockey Challenge. In 2015, he was chosen to Team Canada's final roster ahead of the 2015 IIHF World U18 Championship, where he helped them win the bronze medal.
Nicolas Roy Parents Nick And Lisa Roy
Nicolas Roy parents Nick and Lisa Laplante Roy raised him in Amos Quebec. Lisa attended the University of Laval in Quebec.
His mom and dad are prominent users of social media and have shared several pictures of their son and his hockey career. Among the shots, the majority of the highlighted images were of Nicolas' 2013 QMJHL Draft and his entry-level contract with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2015.
Likewise, Nick and Lisa's Facebook page includes posts about philanthropic efforts as well as news on their son's accomplishments.
Furthermore, there has been speculation that Nicolas is related to Hall of Fame goalkeeper Patrick Roy. In any case, they are unrelated because Patrick has three children of his own: Jonathan, Frederick, and Jana, whom he shares with his ex-wife, Michèle Piuze.
Well, the assumption may have arisen due to their similar surnames and shared careers in the hockey world.
His Father Nick Roy
Nicolas and his father, Nick Roy, share a special father-son relationship. His dad Nick works as an educator at Amos School.
Conversely, his dad claimed before the QMJHL draft that if his son were taken first overall by the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles at the 2013 QMJHL Draft, they would consider alternative options if his rights were not swapped to a Quebec team.
As per yahoo sports, one of the reasons for this was Roy's desire to enroll in a local CEGEP.
