Patrick Roy still appears to have a temper.
The former NHL coach and current head coach of the Quebec Remparts was ejected from Sunday’s QMJHL game between Quebec and the Val-d’Or Foreurs for throwing a tantrum on the bench during the overtime period.
The ex-Avalanche goalie disagreed with a goaltender interference call that took away the game-winning goal for Quebec. Roy can be seen arguing with the ref before aggressively getting in his face and screaming obscenities. Roy was still passionately arguing even after the ref signalled for him to be ejected from the game.

Roy spent three years as coach of the Avalanche in which they missed the playoffs in all but one of those seasons. In those years between 2013 and 2016, the ex-NHL goalie developed a reputation for having a temper and getting easily upset with the referees.
Quebec went on to lose this game in a shootout. Some things really do never change.
