NHL Legend and Hall of Famer, Patrick Roy is apparently looking for a return to the NHL.

PBI Sports confirmed Monday that it has been hired to represent ex-NHL Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy who is looking to find a roll either in coaching or management. Roy is currently general manager and head coach of the idle Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League since leaving the Avalanche after three seasons back in 2016 and had previously coached the Remparts for eight seasons before making the leap to the NHL's Colorado Avalanche.

Roy cited a lack of control over personnel decisions and contrasting philosophies with GM Joe Sakic when he made his exit from Colorado with one season remaining on his deal at the time, and it seems he still prioritizes say in roster matters, having opened himself up for either a coaching or executive role. With Montreal Canadiens GM, Marc Bergevin, who has one season remaining on his current deal, struggling to find success, Roy could be looking at a return to the team that drafted him.
