Kristen Laviolette & Peter Laviolette
Kristen and Peter celebrated their wedding on June 3rd,1996. The Laviolettes now have three wonderful children — Peter, Jack and Elisabeth. While playing for Providence, Peter had spotted Kristen at the Delta Airlines counter of Boston’s Logan International Airport. “Oh my God, will you look at her?” he told his teammates. “Go on over and ask her out,” the boys smirked.
Peter did just that. He ambled over and said hi, giving the beautiful young lady his number and hoping she’d call. When he returned to where his team waited, he sighed, “Boys, I’ve just met my future wife!”
“Yeah, sure! We’ll see,” they snickered. After a couple of days waiting on pins and needles for the phone to ring, Peter finally did hear from Kristen, and the rest, as they say, is history. Ten years of history. The Laviolettes now have three wonderful children — Peter, Jack and Elisabeth.
At the beginning of the hockey season in 2006, Peter promised Kristen gold, silver and diamonds. Regrettably, as coach of Team USA at the Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy, Laviolette was unable to bring home the gold, but there on the ice at the RBC Center in Raleigh on Monday, June 19, Peter delivered on the second of his promises.
“There you go, honey. The Stanley Cup — there’s your silver!” A moment later, standing on the ice with the tumult of a Stanley Cup celebration unfolding around them, the coach delivered on his third promise, too. Reaching into his pocket, he pulled out a spectacular anniversary ring. Handing it to his wife, Peter said, “Happy tenth anniversary, Kristen. Here are the diamonds I promised you. I love you, honey!“
