Transcript of Mario Lemieux
A hockey legend
As a child, Mario´s family was not very fortunate. He and and his brothers would have to play in the basement using only kitchen spoons as hockey sticks, andbottle caps as pucks. Until one day, Mario's father built an ice rink out in their front yard and he practiced until he was very good.
Throughout his hockey career, Mario was awarded many awards and accomplished amazing achievements. These included the following.
6 Time Art Ross Scoring Champion trophy holder.
Lester B. Pearson MVP award 4 times, which was voted by NHL players.
Was on the first and second All Star Team Centre Team.
Against the New Jersey Devils in 1988, he became the only NHL player in history to score a goal in all five possible game situations in only one game.
In the Canada Cup of 1987, he set a record of 11 goals in 9 games.
Lemieux had a huge effect on the hockey world. He inspired many people, including me. He was one of the greatest players to ever play hockey. He also created the Mario Lemieux Foundation. He created it when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, which is a form of cancer. The hospital still helps children around the world today.
One of Mario's most well known challenges was his battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He made it through and survived.
