Roy praises Avalanche rookie defenseman Bigras

Following his first preseason game as the Colorado Avalanche's coach, Patrick Roy said he saw plenty of positives in his team's 2-1 loss Wednesday night to the Anaheim Ducks. He called it a "good step in the right direction" and lauded the team's 5-on-5 play. But no one earned more praise than 18-year-old defenseman Chris Bigras.

"There's nothing I didn't like [about his play]. Even when he was in trouble, he found a way to get back," Roy said on Thursday. "He's pretty amazing. I'm overwhelmed by him right now."

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
