A return to an NHL bench for Patrick Roy soon?

Published May 5, 2023 at 9:37

It's no longer a secret to anyone, Patrick Roy, the current head coach of the Quebec Remparts in the QMJHL, is in his final stretch in junior hockey.

In connection with what awaits the famous number 33 of the Canadiens, Michel Bergeron made an important statement, mentioning that Roy should return behind an NHL bench.

Even though his stint in Colorado was like a roller coaster, winning the Jack Adams Trophy as head coach of the year in his first season in the league, only to have two disappointing seasons after, Bergeron believes Roy should get another chance.

The man nicknamed "le Tigre" also brought up the Senators as a potential destination for Roy, mentioning that they have a young team and a market that could become lucrative.

It's worth noting that D.J. Smith is still employed by the Sens and should not lose his job during the summer. However, it's true that if Ottawa were to have a bad start to the season next year, things could change quickly.
