Al Iafrate was selected fourth overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft after a standout career with the Detroit Compuware Spitfires and a short but distinguished stay with the Belleville Bulls of the OHL. Iafrate played 799 career NHL games over twelve NHL seasons, scoring 152 goals and 311 assists for 463 points. He also compiled 1301 penalty minutes. His best season statistically was the 199293 season, when he scored 25 goals and 41 assists with the Washington Capitals. He is perhaps most famous for his rocket slap shot that set the NHL Skills Competition record in 1993 which stood to 16 years, at 105.2 miles per hour (169.3km/h).
