Number 33 to be retired

La Presse reports the Canadiens will retire Patrick Roy's jersey number in November.

The club would not confirm the story, but columnist Richard Labbé was told the team plans to announce its centennial activities on Sept. 24.

Roy's number 33 already has been retired by the Colorado Avalanche.

Many argue Roy is the greatest goalie of all time. He won the Cup in 1986 and 1993 with the Habs, and in 1996 and 2001 with the Avalanche.

He won the Conn Smythe in 1986, 1993 and 2001.
