Hey Luigi! Big Mario is-a coming back
The Steel City has something to be happy about. No, another one of thier baseball players didn’t bonk another mascot on the head. The messiah is returning for one more year with thier beloved Penguins.Mario Lemuiex has announced he will return for one more season with HIS team. It will be his sixteenth season in the league. As quoted by Lemuiex from nhl.com “I feel great, I’ve been working out and I’m really looking forward to getting back on the ice,” “With some of the guys we have back and some of the young players we have coming up, it should be a very exciting year for us.”
Lemiuex is both the head of an ownership group and CEO for the Penguins. With 28 goals and 63 assists for eighth in league scoring Big Mario proved he can still do it.
This could help the Penguins plans to finance for a new arena to replace the 40 year old Mellon.
Lemuiex himself is close to scoring his 700th career goal and 1700th career point.
