Former NHL goalie Patrick Roy has taken over as coach of the Quebec Remparts, the junior hockey team he co-owns.
Roy, also the team's general manager, fired coach Eric Lavigne on Thursday after the Ramparts got off to a 1-4-0 start in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Lavigne coached the club since the 2002-03 season.
"I believe I can bring passion to the team and to its players," Roy said.
He will make his coaching debut Friday night against St. John's.
