On this day of the opening of the NHL free agent market, when there are many signings in the NHL, Patrick Roy just announced an interesting one.

It's official. The man who just confirmed his return as head coach and general manager of the Quebec Remparts, Patrick Roy, just announced an important signing for his team.

The rumor has been circulating for some time, but it is confirmed and there was even a special press conference today for the occasion.

Patrick Roy has just announced who will be his new assistant. It is former NHL star Simon Gagné.

"Confirmed: Simon Gagné is back home. He is with Patrick Roy and Jacques Tanguay at the press conference table.

The official title is: assistant coach and hockey operations advisor." - Mikaël Lalancette

So Gagné has accepted Roy's invitation and perhaps becomes his future successor:

"Simon Gagné becomes a candidate to succeed Patrick Roy when he bows out as coach: 'Absolutely,' Roy replied, recalling that he wants to give Gagné time to adapt." - Mikaël Lalancette
