Patrick Roy

Patrick Roy Patrick Roy was born on October 5, 1965 in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. He played his minor hockey with the Granby Bisons of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). He was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the 3rd round, 51st overall in 1984 NHL Entry Draft Roy got his first taste of the big leagues in 1984-85, playing one period with the Canadiens. He would go on to become their regular goaltender in the next season and made the All-Rookie team in 1986. But it was the 1986 playoffs where Roy showed what hockey fans would be treated to for years to come. He won 15 games, posting a stunning 1.92 goals against average in the post-season as the Montreal Canadiens surprised many pundits by winning the Stanley Cup Championship. Roy would win the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the playoffs. Over the next decade Roy would solidy his position as one the elite NHL goalies, winning numerous Jennings and Vezina trophies and being an All-Star game regular.

Patrick Roy won his second Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP in 1992 as the Montreal Canadiens won the Stanley Cup. But as the Canadiens organization went through coaching and front office changes, Roy became disenchanted and was dealt to the Colorado Avalanche in 1996. The Avalanche franchise had just moved south from Quebec and was on the cusp of fielding a great team. Patrick Roy added the missing ingredient as he and the Avalance won the Stanley Cup championship. His postseason success continued in the 2001 season as he led to Avalanche to their second Stanley Cup and added his third Conn Smythe Trophy. Patrick Roy brought Glenn Hall's butterfly style of goaltending into the modern NHL era. The butterfly style that has since been copied by numerous goalies that followed him and has revolutionized the position. Roy retired after the 2002 season. In 2006 he won the Memorial Cup coaching and managing the Quebec Ramparts of the QMJHL and was also inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
