Canadian troops abroad have a habit of building themselves ball hockey rinks in unlikely places and Lafleur grabbed a stick to play in both Kandahar and Kabul this week.
The soldiers even awarded Lafleur an epaulet with the four stripes of a colonel.
"Guy Lafleur has been made an honorary colonel and he should be an honorary general," Rudyard Griffiths, head of the Dominion Institute, said in a phone interview Friday from Kabul.
"He's been such a huge morale booster for the troops. He's been playing shinny hockey with them, signing autographs three hours at a stretch."
