Avs Roy To Reunite With Flames Hartley Firday

Roy_Colorado_2013Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy is looking forward to seeing his Calgary Flames counterpart, Bob Hartley, when the teams meet Friday at Pepsi Center.

Roy was tending goal when Hartley coached the Avalanche to a Stanley Cup championship in 2001 and the two men have maintained a close relationship.

“I have a lot of respect for Bob,” Roy said Friday. “Over the past years he always said, ‘Hey, call me. If you need something, I’ll be there for you.’ He’s always been there for me. He called me when I got the [Avalanche coaching position], he called me in the summer, he called me before the start of the season. In training camp he called me. We’re talking a lot.”
