Several of ice hockey's greatest players are honoured with a display case at the Hockey Hall of Fame. Lemiuex was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 1997.
He played his entire career with the Pittsburgh Penguins from 1984-2006. Although he ranks among the all-time leaders in several offensive categories, his numbers suffered due to a bout with Hodgkin's lymphoma and chronic back and hip pain. He has been the principal owner of the Penguins since 1999.
