Patrick Roy meets with Avalanche
The Colorado Avalanche confirmed on Friday that Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy met with team president Pierre Lacroix, although no other details were available.
Roy met with Lacroix on Thursday, a spokesman told the Associated Press. There was no indication whether the pair had planned to meet again or if Roy was being interviewed for a potential position with the club.
Roy, 43, spent nearly eight seasons with the Avalanche after being traded from the Montreal Canadiens in late 1995.
After retiring from the NHL, Roy has served as coach, general manager and owner of the Quebec Remparts. The junior club won the Memorial Cup in 2006 while his two sons, Jonathan and Frederick, have played for the club in more recent years.
Lacroix was general manager of the Avalanche for Roy's entire duration as Colorado's goalie, which included two Stanley Cup wins. Lacroix gave up his GM duties in 2006 and hired François Giguère, who was let go last month after the club missed the playoffs for the second time in three years.
Tony Granato coached the club last season, the first season of a second stint behind the bench for the club.
