"Super" Mario Lemieux saved a floundering franchise in Pittsburgh and led the Penguins to back-to-back Stanley Cups (1991 & 1992), winning MVP playoff honors both years. Lemieux, also known as Le Magnifique, is the only player to average more than two points a game (2.01). His goal-scoring percentage of .823 (613 goals in 745 games) is the best for players with 150 games. Lemieux battled injuries throughout his career, including herniated discs and chronic back pain, but his biggest challenge came in 1993 when he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. After missing two months to be treated with radiation for the disease, Lemieux returned to action and amazingly went on to win the league scoring title with 160 points. He created the Mario Lemieux Foundation later that year to fund cancer research projects throughout the Pittsburgh area.
