Like him or not, you can not deny his greatness:
Colorado’s Patrick Roy is retiring, ending the 18-year career of one of the greatest goaltenders in NHL history. Patrick Roy didn’t leave with another Cup, but he will retire with the most NHL victories.
Roy will make the announcement at a 2 p.m. ET news conference Wednesday, team spokesman Jean Martineau said.
A four-time Stanley Cup champion, Roy is the NHL’s career leader in victories with 551 and games played with 1,029. He also is the career leader in playoff victories, games played and shutouts.
