Mario Lemieux Net Worth $45 Million

Mario Lemieux was born in 1965 in Montreal, Canada. From a very young age Mario was interested in hockey and he even used kitchen tools for practicing, together with his brothers. Mario began his career while playing in the team, called “Laval Voisins”. From that time he showed his incredible skills and even broke the league record for points in a season. In 1984 Mario began playing for the “Pittsburgh Penguins”. This was also the time when Mario Lemieux’s net worth began to grow quickly. Step by step Mario became more popular and acclaimed. Unfortunately, Mario had to miss quite a lot of games because of his health issues, although despite suffering from a serious back compaint, Mario was still able to lead his team to the Stanley Cup. However, in 1997 Mario decided to retire because of repeated health issues.

His retirement was not that long, as Mario came back in 2000. Although he had a break, Mario came back as if nothing had happened to him and showed his best game. This had a huge influence on the growth of Mario Lemieux’s net worth. After leading his team to many victories, in 2006 Mario announced that he would be retiring again, but this time permanently. Despite this fact, he is still the owner of the team and this makes Lemieux’s net worth grow.

In addition to his career, Mario is also involved in charitable activities, including the foundation called “Mario Lemieux Foundation”. He also contributed a lot when the foundation “Athletes for Hope” was created. Mario also helps other organizations, and is interested in creating other foundations that would help people.

All in all, it could be said that Mario Lemieux is one of the best ice hockey players in the history. He was able to overcome his health problems and show the best skills he could. He achieved a lot during his career and maybe would have achieved even more if he wouldn’t have to suffer from a lot of pain. As mentioned before, there is a high chance that Mario Lemieux’s net worth will become even higher as he is still the owner of ice hockey teams and is involved in other activities.
