Patrick Roy Set To Make Return To The NHL

Published May 28, 2023 at 11:50

Former NHL coach and player, Patrick Roy, has had quite the journey since his departure from the Colorado Avalanche in 2016. After spending three seasons as the Avalanche's bench boss and VP of hockey operations, Roy made a transition to coaching in the QJMHL with the Quebec Remparts.

It's been an impressive tenure for Roy, as he has guided the Remparts to great success, putting them in a strong position to compete for the coveted Memorial Cup.


Now, rumors are swirling about a possible return to the NHL for Roy, with the New York Rangers emerging as a potential destination. With Gerard Gallant leaving the coaching position, all eyes are on Roy as a potential candidate to take the reins.

The Rangers, boasting talented prospects like Filip Chytil, Kaapo Kakko, and K'Andre Miller, present an enticing opportunity for Roy. He is known to seek a team that has the potential to be a contender, and the Rangers fit that bill.

If the stars align and Roy joins forces with the Rangers, it could be a match made in hockey heaven. His expertise and experience could be the missing piece that turns the Rangers into the formidable contenders they were built to be. The potential for success is evident, and both Roy and the organization would benefit greatly from this partnership. Only time will tell if this union comes to fruition, but the prospect of it has hockey fans buzzing with anticipation.
