Report- Habs Will Retire Roy’s Number

from Mike Boone of Habs Inside/Out,

La Presse reports the Canadiens will retire Patrick Roy’s jersey number in November.

The club would not confirm the story. Columnist Richard Labbé was told the team plans to announce its centennial activities on Sept. 24.

Roy’s number 33 already has been retired by the Colorado Avalanche.
