DENVER – It’s been one of the most memorable coaching debuts in NHL history.
In his first season as head coach in the NHL, Hall of Fame goaltender Patrick Roy has led the Colorado Avalanche to a remarkable 9-1 record through the first 10 games.
The Avs lead the league in many statistical categories and their dressing room was buzzing with confidence and excitement as they prepared to play the Winnipeg Jets Sunday night at the Pepsi Centre.
“We want to make sure we remain humble,” Roy said Sunday morning. “We don’t want to get too high after wins. We also certainly want to make sure we focus on things we can control. What we control obviously is how we prepare ourselves.”
