NHL legend Patrick Roy arrives at a news conference to announce his decision to refuse the Colorado Avalanches' offer to coach the team and stay with the Quebec Remparts

The Colorado Avalanche have struck out in their bid to lure Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy back to Denver. Roy said he phoned Avalanche president Pierre Lacroix late Tuesday night to tell him he wasn’t accepting the team’s offer to become its new head coach due to family reasons. “All I can say is that the Avalanche’s offer was more than interesting,” he said. “I have enormous respect for Pierre Lacroix. This is a man who played a very important role in my life, in my hockey career, so for sure I will always have an attentive ear for (him).” Roy, the co-owner, general manager and coach of the QMJHL’s Quebec Remparts, plans to stay in the city to support his sons.
