Avalanche coach is fined $10,000
Patrick Roy says he has been fined $10,000 by the NHL for his emotional outburst before in his Colorado Avalanche coaching debut on Wednesday.
Soon after the final horn of a 6-1 win, Roy yelled at Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau and then pounded on the glass partition separating the two benches. Roy was livid over a late knee-to-knee hit on rookie Nathan MacKinnon.
Roy said he will “always defend my players.”
The animated Hall of Fame goalie was far from pleased with Boudreau, who took exception to Roy talking to his players and referees.
Roy said: “What Boudreau said was all lies.”
