Ottawa - May 20, 2019 - Patrick Roy is expected to interview for coach of the Ottawa Senators next week, according to the Ottawa Sun.

The 53-year-old was 130-92-24 in three seasons as coach and vice president of hockey operations for the Colorado Avalanche before resigning abruptly on Aug. 11, 2016.

Roy won the Jack Adams Award voted as the NHL coach of the year in his first season in 2013-14 after the Avalanche went 52-22-8 and finished first the Central Division.

He returned as coach and general manager of Quebec in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on April 26, 2018 and went 27-28-13 this season.

Ottawa (29-47-6) finished last in the NHL this season and fired coach Guy Boucher on March 1. He was replaced by Marc Crawford, who was 7-10-1 over the final 18 games.

The Senators have interviewed Crawford; Pittsburgh Penguins assistant Jacques Martin; Toronto Maple Leafs assistant D.J. Smith; Dallas Stars assistant Rick Bowness; Providence College coach Nate Leaman; and Troy Mann, coach of Belleville of the American Hockey League, according to the Sun.

"They're doing their due diligence," Crawford told TSN 1040 in Vancouver. "It's always good, I think, for organizations to interview as many people as they can, because somewhere along the line you're going to learn something about a team, an organization or a way of doing things that's going to help everybody.

"I'd love to be able to have the answer right now, but it is part of the process and I recognize that, and hopefully they recognize that I'm the top guy for the job. That's all that I can do; I just wait patiently and hope that the best things happen."

Selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the third round (No. 51) in the 1984 NHL Draft, Roy won the Vezina Trophy voted as the League's top goalie three times (1989, 1990, 1992) before being traded to Colorado on Dec. 7, 1995.

Roy retired following the 2002-03 season, and his 551 wins and 1,029 games at the time were the most in NHL history, since passed by Martin Brodeur (691 wins, 1,266 games played). Roy was enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006.
