Roxy (Rocque) Francis Beaudro (February 29, 1884 – February 10, 1960) was an American amateur, and later professional ice hockey winger. He was a member of the 1907 Stanley Cup champion Kenora Thistles.

Playing career

Born in Red Lake Falls, Minnesota on February 29, 1884, "Roxy" moved to the Rat Portage, Ontario area in the early 1890s. At a young age he developed an interest in ice hockey and by 1896 had joined a team of other local boys, including future Hockey Hall of Famers Tommy Phillips, Si Griffis, Billy McGimsie, and Tom Hooper.

Beaudro played for the Rat Portage Thistles (later the Kenora Thistles) from 1896–1907, competing in five Stanley Cup series; 1 in 1903 and 1905 (as a spare), and three in 1907. After several years of retirement from 1907–16, Roxy returned to play 8 games as a defenceman for the NHA's Toronto 228th Battalion squad in 1916–17 before shipping overseas to fight in World War I. He died in Barrie, Ontario on February 10, 1960.

Roxy scored the game winning, series clinching goal in game two of Kenora's successful Stanley Cup match vs. the Montreal Wanderers in January, 1907.
