Roy Meets with Avalanche About Possibly Joining Staff

By  | 

DENVER (AP) - Retired Colorado Avalanche goalie Patrick Roy has met with club president Pierre Lacroix, and team officials won't reveal the topic.

Avalanche spokesman Jean Martineau has confirmed the Thursday meeting to The Associated Press. It first was reported Friday on The Denver Post Web site.

The Avalanche's general manager job is vacant. Francois Giguere was fired last month after a 32-45-5 season. The team hasn't signaled that coach Tony Granato's job was in danger.

Roy retired in 2003 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006.

He coached his two sons' team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League last year. Father and both sons were given suspensions, Frederick for high-sticking, Jonathan for fighting and Patrick for apparently encouraging the fight.
