Noting that locked-out NHL players might wince at the sight, the Journal de Montreal Saturday published pictures and a story detailing a $20 million mansion that Penguins co-owner Mario Lemieux has built in the Laurentians, a resort area north of Montreal.
The French-language newspaper indicated the estate, under construction since September 2009, is ready for occupancy. It has 15,000 square feet, 23 rooms, 10 bathrooms, a pool and a tennis court and is near a golf course and ski slopes.
The Journal said skiers have been gawking at what it calls a stone-and-wood Swiss castle, and others have lingered at the gate hoping to see the Hall of Famer.
Through a spokesman, Lemieux declined to comment on his second home. His local residence is in Sewickley.
