Pat LaFontaine, the legendary ice hockey center who played for all three of the New York teams has purchased an apartment at 900 Park Avenue for $1.68 million with his wife Mary Beth, according to sources familiar with the deal. James Alesi of Douglas Elliman was the listing broker and Lorand Kovacs of Corcoran was the buyer’s broker.
LaFontaine currently holds the record for the most points-per-game scored by an American hockey player ever. When he was an active player, he played only for New York teams, including the New York Islanders, the Buffalo Sabres and the New York Rangers. He retired from playing hockey in 1998 after receiving multiple concussions. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in November 2003.
The apartment he bought has one bedroom, two bathrooms, a glass-enclosed shower and a deep soaking tub. It is currently owned by an LLC and the owner did not wish to be identified. It was most recently listed for $1.749 million.
