Patrick Roy no longer has an agent: he broke up with Neil Glassberg

Patrick Roy no longer has an agent: he broke up with Neil Glassberg

The relationship between Patrick Roy and agent Neil Glassberg lasted only a few months. Roy has put an end to the two men’s professional relationship, which doesn’t mean, however, that he’s putting a cross on his aspirations to one day return to the National Hockey League, he swears.

The news was moved a little under the radar. In fact, Roy called Glassberg at the beginning of last December to tell him that he would prefer to continue his efforts without the help of an agent.

This decision was therefore made prior to the process of appointing a general manager by Montreal Canadiens, in which he was involved. He was one of the 11 candidates Jeff Gorton met and the latter eventually picked Kent Hughes.

“I thought about it in December, before meeting the Canadian. Having an agent is a personal choice. I didn’t feel the need to have an agent at this time, but that doesn’t change my future intentions,” he explained, Tuesday morning, at the end of Remparts’ morning refresher session.

Remember, Roy agreed to work with Glassberg last April, after the latter offered his services to a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Montrealer specializes in representing executives in sports. He privately manages the careers of Pittsburgh Penguins head coach, Mike Sullivan, and the careers of the New York Rangers, Gerard Gallant.

always listening

Therefore, this news does not change his plans. Nothing more than the news of Martin St. Louis being appointed head coach of the confinement complex, a position he also craved, but the phone never rang.

“I will always listen. However, I realize that the screws are closing in on me because of my age and everything,” the 56-year-old admits.

However, as he often said, he’s not desperate to return to the NHL. If an offer came up, whether it came from Montreal or Columbus, he would take the time to study it.

Each situation comes with its context. Listening is part of the process. If something is offered to me and falls on time, we will see. Right now, I love where I am and I love what I do. I’m not looking for anything. »
