He also missed the entire 1994–95 season due to Hodgkin's lymphoma.Despite his lengthy absences from the game, his play remained at a high level upon his return to the ice; he won the Hart Trophy and scoring title in 1995–96 after sitting out the entire previous season, and he was a finalist for the Hart when he made his comeback in 2000.

This was also the season that Sidney Crosby debuted.“I honestly don’t even know what to say to that,” Crosby said.“If people are going to make stuff up, it’s totally out of my control. That’s ridiculous.” Former Penguins player and Sirius XM analyst Matthew Barnaby dropped the bombshell allegation hours before the Penguins beat the Blues on Wednesday.Lemieux cited his Canada Cup experience as the reason for his elevated play later on, stating, "Remember, I was only 21 years old at the time.To be around guys like Wayne [Gretzky] and Mark Messier and Paul Coffey [...] was a tremendous learning experience." Lemieux scored 168 points and won his first NHL scoring title.Lemieux missed 17 games of the 1986–87 NHL season—his point production slipped, and the Penguins once again failed to make the playoffs.

However, he played in the Canada Cup during the summer of 1987 and set a tournament record 11 goals in 9 games; his last goal, which clinched the Canadian victory, broke a tie with the Soviet team with remaining in the third period.

Crosby appears to be breaking out of an early-season slump at the right time.

The two-time NHL MVP went scoreless in eight of his first nine games but now has a three-game points streak with 10 points in his last 12.

In 1999, he bought the Penguins and their top minor-league affiliate, the American Hockey League's (AHL) Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, out of bankruptcy, and is currently the team's principal owner and chairman.

The Hockey Hall of Fame inducted Lemieux immediately after his first retirement in 1997, waiving the normal three-year waiting period; upon his return in 2000, he became the third Hall of Famer (after Gordie Howe and Guy Lafleur) to play after being inducted.

At the time of his retirement, he was the NHL's seventh-ranked all-time scorer with 690 goals and 1,033 assists.
