Patrick Roy would be in the sights of an NHL team

According to information revealed by ESPN's Greg Wyshynski, the Chicago Blackhawks are considering Patrick Roy as the team's general manager.


Remember that Stan Bowman left his duties as general manager with the Hawks recently, due to the allegations against him in the case of Kyle Beach.

Kyle Davidson is currently in charge on an interim basis until a new boss is hired.

Roy's name was brought up when he got the job. Roy has never been a general manager in the NHL, but he has a lot of experience at the junior level with the Quebec Remparts. Recall that Patrick Roy left the NHL in 2016, after spending three seasons managing the Colorado Avalanche. He was also the vice-president of hockey operations with the Avalanche during his time in Denver.

There are many rumors that Patrick Roy will take Marc Bergevin's place with the Montreal Canadiens. However, the Chicago market could represent a nice challenge, despite all the controversy that surrounds the Blackhawks. He could definitely put the train back on tracks.

For now, these are only rumors, but it will be interesting to follow this file.
