Is Patrick Roy Eyeing an NHL Comeback? Separating Fact from Fiction

The buzz surrounding Patrick Roy's potential return to the NHL is causing quite a stir. But can we take these rumors seriously?
Roy's Own Words
In a recent appearance on Les amateurs de sports on 98.5 FM, Roy himself confirmed that he's been fielding calls and attending interviews with NHL teams. Speaking in French, he stated, "I've had calls, and I've had interviews with certain teams," adding that things have been going well on that front.
A History of Change
After successfully guiding the Quebec Remparts to a Memorial Cup victory, Roy, who held the roles of GM and Coach, decided to step down. An interesting twist came during a golf tournament hosted by Serge Savard, where Roy indicated his openness to exploring new opportunities.
Past Ventures and Current Reflections
Following his NHL playing career, Roy took up coaching the Remparts in the QJMHL. In a reflective moment after securing the 2023 Memorial Cup, he shared, "In life, you must be able to leave at the right time. Today, I can leave my positions and say, 'Mission accomplished.'"
NHL Stints and a Look Ahead
Roy's NHL coaching journey saw him at the helm of the Colorado Avalanche from 2013 to 2016. Taking a break, he returned to the Remparts' bench in 2018-2019, continuing there until the most recent season.
While he hasn't zeroed in on a specific role, Roy is keeping his options open for an NHL return. The Ottawa Senators have been mentioned in connection with him, but as of now, no concrete steps have been taken in that direction. The hockey world awaits to see if Roy's potential comeback could reshape the NHL coaching landscape.
