On this day in 1984, Mario Lemieux played his first NHL game. In his very first shift, the 19-year-old stole the puck from Boston’s Ray Bourque and scored a goal. It was a sign of things to come as the Penguins savior would score 690 career goals, earn a spot on 10 all-star teams and lead Pittsburgh to two Stanley Cups. By his side for both Stanley Cups was longtime teammate Jaromir Jagr, who let his mullet fly during this 1992 photo shoot. (Bruce Bennett Studios/Getty Images)
