Congratulations to Pat LaFontaine
, who was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame
earlier today. He will be enshrined, alongside former Edmonton netminder Grant Fuhr, on November 3 in Toronto.
LaFontaine, who tallied 23 goals and 39 assists for 62 points in 67 games with the Rangers during the 1997-98 season, is a five-time NHL All-Star, a six-time 40 goal scorer and the 54th player in league history to reach the 1,000-point plateau.
