Cordy Glenn Jersey

  • Patrick Roy has returned to the Quebec Remparts as coach and general manager.

    The Hall of Fame goalie signed a two-year contract Thursday with the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team. The 52-year-old Roy previously acted as part-owner Cordy Glenn Jersey , coach and GM of the Remparts from 2005-2013, winning a Memorial Cup in 2006.

    ”The Remparts have always been my passion,” he said.

    Roy left the Remparts in 2013 for a three-year stint as coach and vice president of hockey operations for the Colorado Avalanche, during which he won the Jack Adams Trophy as NHL coach of the year in 2014.

    The Quebec City native has not closed the door on an eventual return to the NHL, but said he hasn’t received any offers since his abrupt departure from Colorado Tramaine Brock Jersey , where he felt he was being shut out of hockey decisions.

    Roy returns to a team that has moved out of the Quebec Colisee into the 18,259-seat Videotron Centre and which is now owned by media company Quebecor. Quebecor President and CEO Pierre-Karl Peladeau attended the news conference with Roy, Quebecor-Sports head Martin Tremblay and Remparts President Jacques Tanguay.

    ”Coming back to run the Remparts is like a gift to myself,” Roy said. ”I lived through some very good years behind the bench. I consider it a privilege to come back to my city to coach this team.”

    After splitting a four-game weekend set in Seattle, the Boston Red Sox return to work Tuesday night when they open a three-game series against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field.

    The Red Sox went into their off day on Monday just a half-game behind the New York Yankees Michael Brockers Jersey , but they have won six of their last nine games thanks to a starting rotation that has been among the best in baseball during the last two weeks.

    Chris Sale will look to keep that going Tuesday when he takes the mound for his 16th start of the season. The left-hander snapped a three-start losing streak his last time out, allowing just a run in six innings of a 5-1 victory over Baltimore.

    Sale had allowed 10 runs in 10 1/3 innings against the Atlanta Braves and the Houston Astros on May 27 and June 1, respectively. He rebounded by holding the Chicago White Sox to a run in eight innings while striking out two on June 8 in a 1-0 Red Sox loss before getting back in the win column against the Orioles.

    “I have a good rhythm and tempo going for me right now,” said Sale, who has held opponents to no more than a run in nine starts this season. “I’m feeling good. That’s the way I like it.”

    He’s 10-6 with a 4.21 ERA in 26 career appearances (18 starts) against the Twins Lerentee McCray Jersey , who also had Monday off after a 3-3 road trip that saw them drop two of three to the Detroit Tigers and take two of three from the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians.

    They’ll begin the day third in the division, five games behind Cleveland and 2 1/2 behind Detroit.

    “It was a good series win (in Cleveland),” third baseman Eduardo Escobar said. “We’ll be ready Tuesday for another series at home. This team will be OK. We go out there and play hard every day, but sometimes you have to give credit to the other pitchers.”

    The Twins will turn to their own budding ace for the series opener.

    Right-hander Jose Berrios is 4-1 with a 2.47 ERA in his last six starts. He has allowed more than two runs just once during that stretch and has struck out 51 while walking only 12 in 43 2/3 innings, including 24 strikeouts with two walks in his last three outings.

    Berrios took no-decision his last time out. He held the Tigers to a run Adam Vinatieri Jersey , seven hits and a walk while striking out seven in six innings, but the Twins’ offense and bullpen couldn’t get the job done in a 5-2 loss.

    “He threw a hell of a game,” reliever Addison Reed said afterward. “That was fun to watch. He works his tail off, and it shows when he’s out there. The thing that I’m most (upset) about tonight is not getting him the ‘W.'”

    Berrios has one previous career start against the Red Sox. He allowed four runs and struck out seven in 6 1/3 innings of a 4-1 loss at Fenway Park last season.
