With blood, sweat and tears, hockey is more than just a simple sport, it’s a unique way of life, as NHL players never really stop training. Even in the off season, when any other athlete would normally have a few weeks off, these players try to stay in shape and keep their skills sharp. That’s why the league pays off really well, on and off the ice. Let's have a look at the top homes owned by NHL Players.
Anze Kopitar – Manhattan Beach, California
Mario Lemieux – Mont Tremblant, Quebec
On the ice Mario Lemieux might have been outshined by Wayne Gretzky, but off the ice things are a little different. You see, back in 2009, Lemieux started to build this magnificent chateau-style mansion in Mont Tremblant, Quebec, and a few years later and after spending around $20 million, Super Mario finally received the keys to his new vacation home.
