MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens plan to retire Patrick Roy's No. 33 jersey on Nov. 22.

The Hall of Fame netminder led Montreal to Stanley Cup victories in 1986 and 1993.

Roy, the head coach of the Quebec Remparts in the QMJHL, is considered one of the top goaltenders in NHL history.

He posted a record 551 wins in 19 seasons with the Canadiens and the Colorado Avalanche.

His career in Montreal ended abruptly in December 1995 after he was left in goal by coach Mario Tremblay while being shelled by the Detroit Red Wings.

Roy demanded a trade and was sent to Colorado, where he won a Cup with the Avalanche that season.
