Jeremy Roenick Welcomes Patrick Roy Back To The NHL

Crickets, crickets, crickets…

Patrick Roy has been hired as coach of the Colorado Avalanche.

The team announced Thursday it has reached an agreement in principle with the Hall of Fame goaltender to take over as coach and vice president of hockey operations.

With that being said, it will be interesting how Ex-NHLer and now NBC Sports analyst will critique Roy as a head coach. These two battled in their careers. Roenick’s Twitter @Jeremy_Roenick has been silent the past couple of days. In case you have forgotten the rivalry, enjoy the video below.
