Patrick Roy recently changed agents
A few years ago, when rumors of a return to the NHL were rife, Patrick Roy hired himself an agent. Neil Glasberg, a well-known figure in the industry, was his choice.

The news was announced in April 2021, and in December of the same year, he parted company with his agent. It all happened very quickly.

But what’s interesting is that yesterday, in the Insider Trading segment , Pierre LeBrun announced that Patrick Roy had changed agents. For the past few weeks, he has been with veteran Gil Scott.

For those who want to learn a little more about Gil Scott’s company, which represents people from several sports, this is the place to go.

What’s interesting is that the TSN tipster did say that Roy had “changed” reps, not that he’d hired anyone. Does this mean that between Glasberg and Scott, there was another?

Did he have an agent when the Habs interviewed him for the GM job last year? Good question.

I wonder if Patrick Roy often changes agents because he feels he’s not represented well enough to break into the NHL, which he clearly wants to do – under the right conditions.

After all, it’s certainly not to manage his place with the Remparts that he hires an agent, we agree.

Perhaps it’s also because the bar was so high when he was a player (Pierre Lacroix) that he can’t find the same bond of trust as before. Who’s to say?

What we do know is that his agent is going to have his work cut out for him, since according to LeBrun, a number of teams have begun talking to Patrick Roy’s clan to gauge his interest in returning to the NHL. He wonders if the openings in Washington and New York could work out for Roy.

This comes as no surprise, as his name has been circulating for some time now, and we know that a few teams are considering signing him to return to the NHL in 2023.

But the more time passes, the more concrete it seems. That doesn’t mean he’ll be hired, but at the very least, he seems to be under consideration.

In fact, the more time passes, the less it seems to be reported that he slammed the door on the Avalanche in 2016. The recent success of the man aiming for his second Memorial Cup at the helm of the Remparts no doubt has something to do with it.

Do you believe in his return to the NHL? I believe it more and more. The stars will have to align, though.

In gusts

– Still…

– Pittsburgh’s been on a roll the last few years.

– Too bad.

– With good reason.

– Wow.
