A real slap to the face for Joshua Roy, and Montreal Canadiens fans are furious

Joshua Roy is undeniably proving that he might be too good for the American Hockey League (AHL). The forward is truly dominant, averaging over two points per game.

The sample size is still small after just five games, but Roy is standing out in the early part of the season. Several experts, who initially preferred to keep him with the Laval Rocket for a full year, are slowly changing their minds.

Their main argument is that, in their view, a player who averages one point per game in the AHL has little left to prove there. Well, Joshua has 11 points after five games. It will be interesting to see if he can maintain this pace.

In short, with 5 goals and 6 assists, Josh leads the league's scoring charts. Last week, in three games, he scored three goals and seven points, which is the best performance in the league.


However, the league decided to award the Player of the Week title to a 24-year-old player who had five points in three games, instead of giving it to Roy, who is also 24 and had seven points.

The comments are numerous, and Canadiens and Rocket fans are outraged. Roy certainly deserves this title, even if it won't keep him up at night. It's a matter of principle.
