Could Patrick Roy the next coach of the Avalanche?

Patrick Roy could be the next coach of the Colorado Avalanche, according to various news sources.

According to one, a source in the NHL has confirmed that whoever is at the helm of the Quebec Remparts was among the serious candidates to replace Joe Sacco. The Avalanche has not had a head coach since the dismissal of its previous coach at the end of the last season.

Joe Sakic, the vice-president of hockey operations for the Avalanche, however, did not confirm that he had a meeting with Patrick Roy concerning it.

Patrick Roy had declined the position in 2009 when the Avalanche made ​​him an offer. He preferred to remain in the junior major hockey league with the Quebec Remparts, with his sons, Frederick and Jonathan.

After refusing the offer, the former Habs goaltender had hoped that the Avalanche would reconsider their offer in the future.

The Remparts’ Managment would not comment on allegations made by the CBC and the Denver Post.

Since 2005, Patrick Roy, 47, has a record of 307 wins, 138 losses and 32 draws parts with the Quebec Remparts. He also won a Memorial Cup.
