I was shocked to hear the news that legendary goalie Patrick Roy is going to announce his retirement today after 18 years in the league. Although he’s 37 years old, he’s still one of the best goalies in the game, and his legacy will certainly never be forgotten:
Roy is a four-time Stanley Cup champion – two each with Colorado and Montreal – and is the only three-time winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy, awarded to the playoff MVP. He is the league’s career leader in victories with 551 and games played with 1,029, and he’s also tops in playoff victories, games played and shutouts.
I guess there’s something to be said for leaving at the top of your game, but I for one will miss his imposing presence on the ice.
