(Montreal) Victoriaville Tigres defenseman Pier-Olivier Roy was named the last player of the week in the QMJHL before the holiday break on Monday.

The 19-year-old from Adstock scored three goals and four assists in two home games last week, helping the Tigers record just as many wins.

Roy first collected a goal and an assist in his team’s 6-4 victory against the Shawinigan Cataractes on Friday evening.

He then collected two goals and three assists in an 8-5 win against the Rimouski Océanic on Saturday afternoon, giving the Tigres a third victory in a row. It was then the first time that the Quebec defender reached the five-point plateau in a career game in the QMJHL.

Roy was selected in the first round, seventh overall, by the Tigres in the 2020 QMJHL Draft. His 26 points in 31 games this season place him sixth among all defensemen in the league.

The veteran succeeds Rouyn-Noranda Huskies forward Antonin Verreault for the player of the week title, and he is the second Tigres player to receive this honor this season, after Nathan Darveau during the sixth week of activities .
