Patrick Roy – Montreal Canadiens Tribute
This is a video montage of Patrick Roy, the Montreal Canadiens goalie who wore number 33.
His NHL Hockey career lasted 18 years and he was drafted 51st overall in the 1984 draft.
Nicknamed “Saint Patrick,” Roy split his professional career between the Montreal Canadiens, whom he played with for 10 years, and the Colorado Avalanche, whom he played with for 8 years, both of the National Hockey League. Roy won two Stanley Cup championships with each franchise. In 2004, Roy was selected as the greatest goaltender in NHL history by a panel of 41 writers, coupled with a simultaneous fan poll. On November 13, 2006, Roy was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. He is the only player in NHL history to have won the Conn Smythe Trophy (the award given to the most valuable player in the Stanley Cup playoffs) three times and also in different decades. Roy is widely credited with popularising the butterfly style of goaltending, which has since become associated with goalies from Roy’s native Quebec. Roy’s number 33 is retired by both the Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche.
