LaFontaine is charity’s Iron Man


‘From time to time, people remind LaFontaine how much his good works have impacted them. Last March, just hours after the Sabres retired his jersey No. 16, he went out to celebrate with friends and family close to HSBC Arena. A man he didn’t know offered to buy LaFontaine a drink and told him he’d been a patient at Children’s Hospital in Buffalo when LaFontaine bought a box in the luxury suites for some of the patients there.’
