From Kevin Mio of the Montreal Gazette:
Canadiens president Pierre Boivin has called a news conference for 3 p.m. today at the Bell Centre at which time he will announce that the Canadiens will retire No. 33 in honour of Patrick Roy as part of the team’s festivities celebrating its centennial season in 2008-09.

This just makes the rumors official. The honor is well deserved, as Roy was instrumental in both the 1986 and 1993 Cup victories for Les Habitants.
Update: The number will honored on November 22nd. (Thanks to reader Bryan for the tip)
