He is a 6-2 183 pound left wing and was rated the 34th best North American Skater but the best high school prospect by NHL Central Scouting. Mario is the youngest of Minnesota Gophers coach Don Lucia’s two sons. His other son Tony plays for his dad at the U of M. Mario still has to decid where he would like to attend college. His short list is down Minnesota, Notre Dame and Colorado College.
