MONTREAL (AP) - Patrick Roy will have his no. 33 retired by the Montreal Canadiens on November 22nd before the team's game against Boston.
Roy previously had his number retired by Colorado. He is the NHL's only three-time winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy, awarded to the MVP of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
Roy parted ways with Montreal on bad terms during the 1995-96 season. He forced a trade after he was left in goal by head coach and former teammate Mario Tremblay during a blowout loss to Detroit.
The four-time Stanley Cup winner with Montreal and the Colorado Avalanche is the winningest goalie in league history. He retired following the 2002-03 playoffs and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2006.
