Mario Lemieux already has the richest contract in hockey.

Now, he's getting a rich candy bar to go with it.The Pittsburgh-based D.L. Clark Candy Co., maker of the Clark Bar, will market the Mario Bar in honor of Lemieux, who has led the Pittsburgh Penguins to two straight Stanley Cup championships.

The bar will be a special version of the caramel-based Bun(R) Bar.

A Pittsburgh athlete hasn't had his own candy bar since the Bubby Bar, named for Steelers quarterback Bubby Brister, briefly hit the market in 1990.
