Own the IceBook - 2002
He is skilled, he is smart, and he is stubborn. These qualities have made Mario Lemieux a unique and unforgettable hockey player. Some say the best ever. In his teens and twenties, Super Mario captured two Stanley Cups, three MVP awards, and six scoring titles, and also won a dramatic fight against cancer. Still in his prime, Lemieux left the game at 31 and eventually became an NFL owner. But the pull of the puck proved too great. After sitting in the owners box for three seasons, he laced up the skates, pulled on jersey number 66, and picked up right where he left off: as the games most admired star. Mario Lemieux is a reminder of the amazing things you find when you dare to look deep within yourself. His story is not just about comebacks. It is a story of the human heart.
