Roy Radke (born December 10, 1996) is an American professional ice hockey winger who plays for SaiPa in the Finnish top tier league Liiga.
Roy was drafted by the Barrie Colts in the 2012 Ontario Hockey League Draft and by the Indiana Ice in the 2013 USHL Draft.
After the Ice temporarily withdrew from the USHL before the 2014–15 season, his playing rights were sent to the Dubuque Fighting Saints.
On August 12, 2014, Roy committed to play in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) with the Colts after concluding the 2013–14 season at Shattuck St. Mary's with a National Championship title.
Leading up to the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Roy was ranked 104th for North American skaters by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau. He was eventually drafted 164th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks.
Without a contract from the Blackhawks, he returned for one more season of major junior hockey before signing an amateur tryout agreement (ATO) with the Blackhawks American Hockey League affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs.
However, a few days after signing his ATO, Roy underwent season ending surgery, cutting his final OHL season short.
Although Roy was given the option to join the IceHogs in the AHL after his rehab, on August 21, 2017, he left North America to play with SaiPa in the Finnish Liiga on a tryout contract; his tryout was extended in early October and he eventually signed a one year contract with the team in November. His contract was extended to the 2018–19 season on March 10, 2018.
Early on in the 2018–19 season, Roy suffered a head injury and was out for the remainder of the season. On April 3, 2019, the team announced that he would be healthy for the following season.
Although Roy grew up in Logan Square, Chicago, his family moved to St. Charles while he was young. He stayed in St. Charles and was educated at Lincoln Elementary School until the fourth grade when his family moved to Geneva.
He attended Geneva Middle School North before playing prep hockey in Indiana at Culver Military Academy.
Roy later transferred to Shattuck St. Mary's in Minnesota where he played prep school hockey with the Shattuck St. Mary's Midget Prep.
