Mario Lemieux 3
Over his career, he has been known as "Super Mario," "The Savior of the Pittsburgh Penguins," and "Irreplaceable." But now, with the recent Penguin Stanley Cup victory, Mario becomes known as the only person to win the Stanley Cup as an owner and player.
The Boston Bruins right-winger displayed a balance of scoring and grit that any hockey coach would cherish. He finished his career with 606 points and 2,095 minutes in penalties.
This Hall of Fame goaltender finished his hockey career with 407 wins, a record that stood for over 30 years and his career record of 103 shutouts remains unsurpassed among NHL goaltenders.
Once considered a long shot to play in the NHL due to his size, Theo used a physical style of play to ultimately score over 1000 points while winning the Stanley Cup with the Flames and a gold medal in the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
A Three time Stanley Cup winner and Hall of Fame defenseman was know for his tremendous strength and calm under pressure. He was also know for his multi-million dollar donut chain "Tim Horton Donuts."
Wayne Gretzky 9
What is a legends line without "The Great One?" Holder of 66 NHL records, Gretzky's #99 has been retired by all teams in the NHL. He is one of only two athletes to have earned this honor in a professional sport. The other being baseball's Jackie Robinson.
