Benoit Hogue

Islanders 1991-1995
Coyotes 2000

Part of the biggest trade in Islanders history, Benoit Hogue, alongside Pierre Turgeon, was shipped to Long Island from the Buffalo Sabres with Pat LaFontaine headed to Western New York.

Scoring just 45 goals in 196 career games with the Sabres, Hogue eclipsed the 30-goal mark in his first three seasons with the Islanders.

Hogue was pivotal to the Islanders's 1993 playoff run, scoring 12 points in 18 games before being eliminated by the eventual Stanley Cup champion Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Having only a cup of coffee with the Coyotes, Hogue signed in Phoenix in February 2000, playing only 27 games. He finished the season with 13 points (3 G, 10 A), including a pair of assists in his debut with the team.
