SUPER MARIO!


The Pittsburgh Penguins will unveil a statue honoring former star and current team co-owner Mario Lemieux on March 7, 2012. The unveiling of the statue, called “Le Magnifique” will be at 12:00 PM EST, outside the northwest gate at Consol Energy Center. The bronze statue is designed by scupltor Bruce Wolfe.

Lemieux scored 690 goals and assisted on 1,033 others during his Hall of Fame career. He led the Penguins to consecutive Stanley Cups in 1992-93. He became part of the ownership group that saved the franchise from relocation (the house that Sidney built!).
