Mario takes the ice
No, Penguins co-owner Mario Lemieux isn't eyeing another NHL comeback, but he hit the ice Tuesday at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry.
Lemieux joined a handful of fellow alums for an informal skate, reports Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Lemieux takes to the ice every year to prepare for his fantasy camp, which will start Feb. 25. But it's the first time he did it at the publicly accessible practice facility bearing his name.
He will not play in the alumni game against former Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.
