LATEST NEWS: The verdict is in on Patrick Roy

Published June 28, 2022 at 8:38 PM

We told you earlier today that Patrick Roy's future in the hockey world continues to cause a lot of reactions, especially since the announcement of Luke Richardson's departure.

The Montreal Canadiens are looking for a new assistant coach.

Many fans and observers have suggested the name of Patrick Roy, but before possibly thinking about the Habs, Roy must make a decision on his future in the QMJHL.

Remember that Roy took many by surprise during the Quebec Remparts' end-of-season review, by questioning his future behind the team's bench. Since this statement from the former NHL star goaltender, speculation has been rife as to Roy's future, not only with the Remparts but in the field hockey world in general.

We reported this morning that an announcement was imminent in this file (according to Stéphane Turcot), and well, the verdict is in.

Let's remember that three options were available to Roy:

1- Remain head coach and general manager of the Remparts

2- Remain only as general manager of the Remparts

3- Leave the Quebec Remparts.


See what the TVA network has just published:

"Nothing is confirmed yet, but everything leads us to believe that Patrick Roy will be back at the helm of the Quebec Remparts next season. At least that's what journalist Stéphane Turcot implied during his appearance on the podcast La Dose." - TVA Sports

See what Turcot was just mentioning:

"According to what I hear and what I'm told, he will be back for one last season." - Stephane Turcot

So Roy would have chosen option #1, and he would remain as the Remparts' head coach and general manager (at least another year)

We're talking possibly one last go around, in the QMJHL, for Patrick Roy.

As for a potential opportunity as assistant coach of the Montreal Canadiens, this decision does not affect this file. If the offer (from the CH) comes, he will certainly have to reconsider.

More details will follow!
