North Bay goaltender Zach Roy caught a lot of OHL scouts eyes with his incredible performance this week at the OHL Cup. 

However, his final memory for the event for the Toronto Young Nationals goalie will be the toughest.  

With the score tied 2-2 and less than 10 seconds left in regulation, Dennis Golovatchev ripped a quick wrist shot past Roy off a face-off for the game winning goal as the Mississauga Reps edged the Nationals 3-2 in the OHL Cup final which was broadcast live on Rogers Sportsnet Monday night.   

Despite allowing the late goal, Roy - who was solid again as he kept his team close - was named the Nats MVP of the final as he made 38 saves in the loss.  

Roy finished the tournament with a 5-2 record along with a stingy 1.91 GAA and a .956 save percentage.   

Scouts believe he will be likely one of the top five goaltenders taken in the April 8th OHL Priority Selection.
