Share This

The Colorado Avalanche are on the verge of naming Patrick Roy’s successor.

The Avalanche wrapped up interviews Monday and will name their new head coach this week, possibly as early as Wednesday, the club told Mike Chambers of The Denver Post.

Chambers and colleague Terry Frei reported Monday that Chicago Blackhawks assistant coach Kevin Dineen and San Jose Sharks assistant coach Bob Boughner have emerged as major candidates for the vacant Colorado job.

Roy announced his resignation from his dual role as Avalanche head coach and vice-president of hockey operations earlier this month after three seasons with the team.
