The Lecavalier Arena

from J. Meagher of the West Island Gazette,

Vincent Lecavalier put Île Bizard on the hockey map and now the island is returning the favour.

On Thursday, the arena at Sport Complexe Saint-Raphaël will be renamed after the island’s most famous native son.

There is already a Pavillon Vincent Lecavalier in Île Bizard. The community centre is located next to the soccer and football fields and outdoor hockey rink where Vinny, now 30, played as a youth.

But a hockey arena bearing his name seems more fitting for the NHL star who left home as a teenager in the 1990s to pursue his hockey dream, but still comes home every summer to spend time with family and friends.
