Patrick Roy officially quits the Remparts

This is it. Patrick Roy’s career with the Quebec Remparts seems to be coming to an end.

Tomorrow, the CH veteran will meet the media to announce the news that he is leaving the organization. Kevin Dubé (Journal de Québec) shared the news on Twitter.

It’s not a huge surprise.

We all knew he was on his last lap following his club’s Memorial Cup conquest… And that’s even though “Casseau” said he’d be thinking about his options after the Remparts’ victory.

In the end, he left no one indifferent in Quebec City, and he can be satisfied with what he was able to accomplish with the Remparts. No one can deny it.

But now…

We have to wonder what the future holds for him.

Patrick Roy is 57 years old. He’s not old, but at the same time, he’s given a lot to the field hockey world since he retired as a player. Would he like to “move on” to the next stage, so he can rest and enjoy himself?

Only he can answer that question. On the other side of the coin, his desire to coach in the National Hockey League is well known, and I’m sure he’ll be paying close attention should any team decide to approach him for a head coaching position.

Anyhow. There’s not much point in speculating, because that’s not what I’m writing about.

That said, I’d like to salute Patrick Roy and congratulate him on everything he’s contributed to Quebec junior field hockey. He has changed the lives of a multitude of young players by sharing his passion with them, and he should be absolutely proud of that.

Hats off to him! And, if you ever come across this article, Patrick Roy… I wish you all the best for the future.


I’ve mentioned Patrick Roy throughout this article, but it’s also the end for Jacques Tanguay in Quebec City. Two men who played a major role in the Remparts’ success in recent years.
