Pat LaFontain Hall of Fame Weekend, Updates/articles/favorite moments....

I'll add articles and edit this message often. Everyone please contribute whatever they find and of course their memories of Lafontaine as an Islander, Sabre or Ranger.

On Sunday it was reported on NHL2Nite that the Induction Ceremony would be aired live on Espn Classic at 7pm. Fox will have a hookup during the Islander game on Monday to interview LaFontaine.

Espn Classic will air 1987: Islanders vs Caps 2pm Monday, for those who do not have the game on tape.

Hall doors open for pioneers

LaFontaine was at the forefront of the American surge into the NHL
marketplace. Fuhr was among the first black hockey players to make an impact in the NHL, more than 25 years after Willie O'Ree broke the
color barrier.

LaFontaine Left an Impression (Espn.com)

As a person who has given something back to every community he ever played in, LaFontaine is every bit the Hall of Famer as he is a hockey player.

Seldom has the NHL seen a classier act.
