Report- Patrick Roy Will Be Interviewing For The Coaching Job In Ottawa

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

Talk in league circles Saturday was that legendary NHL goaltender Patrick Roy is expected to be the final interview by Ottawa general manager Pierre Dorion in a thorough search for the vacant post behind the bench.

It’s believed the Senators could speak to the 53-year-old Roy next week to discuss the possibility of being a full-time replacement for Guy Boucher, who was fired by the club on March 1. That would make Roy the mystery seventh candidate for the job, with six interviews already completed.

Roy also has a good relationship with Ottawa assistant GM Peter MacTavish, a former agent, who has been conducting the interviews with Dorion.

While Roy is best known for his Hall-of-Fame career with the Montreal Canadiens and the Colorado Avalanche, he has paid his dues as a coach and has had success.

Roy will be pulling his goalie in the second period because the team will be down by ten goals. Don Cherry will praise him for reinventing hockey.
