Former NHL Goalie and Current Coach Patrick Roy Sends Son to Fight Another Goalie

Kieran HaweAnalyst IMarch 24, 2008

We all know that Patrick Roy was a legendary goalie, maybe one of the best to ever stand between the pipes.

However, did you know that he now coaches in a Quebec Junior Hockey league and his son, Jonathan Roy, is the team's starting goalie? Did you also know that they are a bunch of goons?

Being a huge hockey fan, when I saw this story over at I felt compelled to read, but then I saw the below video and it got me all fired up. The story goes like this (this comes from TSN.CA):

“The spirited rivalry between the QMJHL’s Quebec Remparts and Chicoutimi Sagueneens reached a new low on Saturday, and once again, a Roy was front and centre. This time, however, it wasn’t Quebec head coach Patrick Roy, but his son Jonathan who plays goal for the Remparts.

"With the Remparts trailing 7-1 near the end of the second period of their playoff game on Saturday, players on both sides began to brawl. The younger Roy skated towards Chicoutimi netminder Bobby Nadeau, but was held back by two on-ice officials.

“According to reports, it was at that point that father Patrick told his son to go after Nadeau. Jonathan Roy skated towards the opposing netminder and landed a series of punches without any retaliation, then saluted the opposing fans before starting another fight with defenceman Sebastien Rioux. ”

Great, interesting right? We all love a good hockey fight right, especially when goalies go at it.

However, watch the video. You will see that the other goalie wants NOTHING to do with Roy or fighting in general.

But does that stop Roy from taking him down and getting a few cheap shots in? Of course not.
