Last-Minute Reversal with the New York Islanders, Now Coached by the Legendary Patrick Roy.

Earlier today, it was announced that the Islanders had hired Quebec native Benoit Desrosiers as an assistant coach, but it appears that nothing is official yet.

The Islanders released a statement on social media confirming that no agreement had been reached between the two parties.

Desrosiers is the current head coach of the Gatineau Olympiques. He knows Patrick Roy very well since the two men worked together for several years with the Quebec Remparts.


Former goalie #33 has great respect for Benoit Desrosiers, and no one was surprised to see that he wanted to surround himself with this coach in his new role in New York.

«#Isles Statement: Benoit Desrosiers has not been hired by the New York Islanders. It is planned that President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello will meet with Desrosiers soon.»


It seems that Patrick Roy might not be able to do everything he wants and that all decisions must be approved by the veteran, Lou Lamoriello.
