Pat LaFontaine is a New York legend. One of the best American-born hockey players of all-time, LaFontaine played for all three New York state NHL teams (Islanders, Sabres and Rangers) in a career which spanned from 1983 to 1998.
Since hanging up his skates, LaFontaine has served as a front office executive with several teams, most recently as president of hockey operations for the Sabres. He unexpectedly resigned the position earlier this week.
Where is LaFontaine headed? Well, not back to his palatial home on the North Shore of Long Island. The Hockey Hall of Famer has been trying to sell the enormous mansion with views of Long Island Sound since last summer. He just cut the price back to $6.399 million.
Whichever buyer comes up with the money for LaFontaine’s place will get a shaded 2.15-acre property with 235 feet of private beachfront and plenty of distance from the bustle of New York City.
Highlights of Pat LaFontaine’s Long Island House:
• 500 feet of private beachfront
• Huge wine cellar, a card room and a pair of gyms
• 5 bedrooms, 5 baths and 2 half-baths
• 17.2 miles to Blush gentlemen’s club
• 27.7 miles from Whole Foods
