Patrick Roy’s son Frederick has major meltdown (Video)
Patrick Roy’s son, Frederick, had a major meltdown in his first game at the Spengler Cup on Thursday. Playing for the Rochester Americans of the AHL, Roy was ejected for trying to start a fight with Cody Almond of Swiss club Geneva-Servette. There is no fighting allowed in the Spengler Cup, so Roy was tossed.
Roy yelled some stuff at his opponent’s bench and pointed his finger at them before clearing out. Then he started screaming as he was storming through the tunnel to the locker rooms, knocked down some sticks, and cursed out a cameraman for filming his meltdown. You can watch the video below, but it has some NSFW language:
In 22 games this season, Roy has three goals and 83 penalty minutes for the Americans, which are an affiliate of the Buffalo Sabres.
Roy sent this apology tweet in French:
Je voudrais m'excusez pour la façon dont j'ai quitté la glace hier. Mes émotions ont pris le dessus et j'ai appris ma leçon…..

This is just a taste of the Roy family’s behavior. Another son, Jonathan, was suspended 15 games for his 2008 on-ice assault of an opposing goalie in a QMJHL game:
As if that wasn’t enough, there was this heated incident between Patrick and Ducks head coach Bruce Boudreau in October. And while we’re at it, here’s the great goalie fight between Roy and Mike Vernon in 1997:
And here is Roy’s classic fight with another Red Wings goalie, Chris Osgood, a year later:
That Roy family, man, you don’t want to mess with them.
