Report: Caps Assistant Coach Lane Lambert a finalist for vacant Avalanche head coach position (Updated)
Two weeks ago, Hall of Fame goaltender and Jack Adams Award-winning coach Patrick Roy resigned as vice president of hockey operations and bench boss of the Colorado Avalanche. Citing unhappiness with his role in personnel decisions, Roy left the Avs without a head coach six weeks before training camp.
General Manager Joe Sakic has been interviewing candidates ever since and on August 17, we learned that Capitals Assistant Coach Lane Lambert was receiving “some consideration” for the vacancy. Now a report from The Denver Post this evening indicates Lambert is now a finalist for the open head coach position.
