When Matt Roy steps onto the ice, he brings a hard-nosed, gritty approach that he's never wavered from since his years playing at local hockey programs such as Victory Honda in Canton.
That lunch-bucket mentality and his work ethic caught the attention of the Los Angeles Kings, who recently signed the Canton resident to a two-year entry-level contract.
"I talked to them about that (his determination) and they said they really liked it," said Roy, so dedicated to his off-ice training that he'll ride a bike to get there. "So they just wanted me to keep doing my thing."
