Pat LaFontaine began a new job with the NHL on Monday, TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports. It’s unclear what his exact title is, though.

It appears that the former NHL star’s duties are as cloudy as his job description, as he’ll work in a “variety of capacities” for the likes of Brendan Shanahan and Bill Daly, according to McKenzie.

Regardless of the specifics, it’s rarely anything but delightful to see LaFontaine’s face pop up.

Unless, maybe, he starts making controversial suspension decisions instead of Shanahan one of these days …

    Seriously. The Sabres need to back that dump truck full of money that ownership keeps claiming they have up to LaFontanine and make him the damn GM. Like right now. But no, us fans will get more gimmicks like dual captains and patchwork alternate sweaters.
