The Pittsburgh Penguins were the best team in the NHL during the 1992–93 regular season. Their 56 wins and 119 points earned them the President's Trophy's as the league's top team. Four players reached the 100-point plateau and, for the second consecutive season, five reached the 30-goal plateau. Despite missing over a quarter of the regular season, Mario Lemieux returned later in the year to help the Penguins put together a 17-game winning streak, an NHL record still standing today.

OffseasonEdit

Regular seasonEdit

Mario LemieuxEdit

It was announced during the regular season that Mario Lemieux had been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease. Despite missing 24 regular-season games and the 1993 NHL All-Star Game in Montreal on Saturday, February 6, Lemieux led the league in Plus/Minus with +55 and led in scoring with 160 points (a total for which he would win the Art Ross Trophy). At the pace he was scoring goals (1.15 per game) and picking up assists (1.52 per game), he would have scored 97 goals and tallied 128 assists for 225 points had he played all 84 games. Had he achieved these totals, he would have broken Wayne Gretzky's all-time records for most goals in a season (92) and most points in a season (215). In recognition of his dedication and his achievements, Lemieux was awarded the Hart Trophy as league MVP of 1992–93.
