LaFontaine/Webb lead LI Royals to National Championship

Congratulations to former Islanders Pat LaFontaine and Steve Webb, who led the LI Royals to a National Championship this weekend.

NHL.com is a week behind and has their story on the NY State Championship here: http://www.nhl.com/ice/blogpost.htm?id=8078

The Royals, a U-16 Tier 1 squad, rallied from an early 1-0 deficit to defeat the Dallas Stars Elite 5-1 on Sunday in Williamsville, NY to earn the National title.

The Royals are led in part by Buffalo-native Justin Bailey, who lived with LaFontaine during the season. Bailey had 2 goals and an assist in the Championship game.
