Hockey legend Lafleur mugged


MONTREAL—Hockey legend Guy Lafleur was used to taking knocks on the ice but wasn't ready for a robber's punch during a recent South American vacation.

Lafleur, his wife and another couple were waylaid by three thugs on motorcycles a week ago in Buenos Aires, Argentina, as they got off a shuttle.

The robbers attacked Lafleur's friend and went after his wife, grabbing a watch.

Lafleur, 54, was also on the receiving end of a fist that gave him a black eye.

"I didn't have any time to react before I got a sucker-punch in the eye," said the Hockey Hall of Fame player. "It was like one of the players from the Bruins.

"I didn't fall," said the former goal scorer with the Montreal Canadiens, Quebec Nordiques and New York Rangers.

He also noted the robbers didn't get his watch.

The robbers vanished as quickly as they appeared and Lafleur said the matter wasn't reported to police because the travellers didn't want to lose time.

However, he said tourists should be cautious about where they wear any jewellery and should keep valuables in a concealed money belt in rougher areas.
