Patrick Roy dons goalie pads in practice with Avalanche
Hall of Fame goalie prepares for alumni game
Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy took "Throwback Thursday" to a whole new level during his team's practice.
The legendary Hockey Hall of Fame goalie wore his classic Koho pads and even took a few shots in what Sportsnet reports was preparation for the upcoming 2016 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series alumni game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Roy still looks sharp considering that he played his last NHL game with the Avalanche on April 22, 2003.
Prior to his time in Colorado – where he helped the franchise to two Stanley Cup wins – Roy backstopped the Montreal Canadiens to Stanley Cup victories in 1986 and 1993.
He retired with an NHL-record 551 wins, which has since been surpassed by Martin Brodeur.
