During his teens, Lindros would become a well-known power forward, thanks to his physical prowess and scoring ability. He attended Monarch Park and later went to North Collegiate Toronto. He played for the Metro Junior “B” St. Michael’s Buzzers before moving to the OHL. He was given the nickname “The Next One” due to his high value as an amateur player. He earned an exclusive deal with sports card manufacturer Score. In the OHL, the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds drafted him but he declined to sign with the team, and was traded to the Oshawa Generals for who he would play from 1990 to 1992, helping the Generals win a J. Ross Robertson Cup and a Memorial Cup victory. He also won the Eddie Powers Memorial Trophy, Red Tilson Trophy, and CHL Top Draft Prospect Award, certainly helping his net worth.
Eric then joined the 1991 NHL Draft, and was selected by the Quebec Nordiques despite saying that he didn’t want to play for the team, so while waiting for a trade, kept playing with the Generals. Meantime, he played in the 1992 Winter Olympics, helping Canada to the silver medal. He was then traded to the Philadelphia Flyers and would start to establish himself immediately as a top player of the team, and a dominating influence in the NHL, succeeding Kevin Dineen as team captain, becoming a part of the dreaded “Legion of Doom” alongside John LeClair and Mikael Renberg. He won the Hart Memorial Trophy in 1995 and led the Flyers to their first play-off appearance in 1995.
In 1997, the Flyers would reach the Stanley Cup Finals but were swept by the Detroit Red Wings. The following year, Lindros was ranked as one of the “100 Greatest Hockey Players of All Time” by The Hockey News, despite only being 25 years old at that time. Eventually, Eric’s relationship with General Manager Bobby Clarke would deteriorate, plus he spent a lot of time on the injured list due to a series of concussions, and 1999 would be his last season with the team due to numerous issues with trainers failing to diagnose the problem, but his net worth was still rising.
He was eventually traded to the New York Rangers in 2001, with who he would continue to perform well. He earned his seventh All-Star selection, but was unable to participate due to an injury. In 2005, he signed a deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs, then in 2006 he signed a one year deal with the Dallas Stars, before announcing his retirement. His net worth had increased significantly thanks to these numerous changes and opportunities.
After retiring, he became the National Hockey League Players’ Association ombudsman, but he left the job after 15 months. In 2016, he was inducted in to the Hockey Hall of Fame. The following year, he reunited with “Legion of Doom” line mates to play at the 50th Anniversary Alumni game.
For his personal life, it is known that Eric married Kina Lamarche in 2012. They have three children and reside in Toronto. He’s also known for his philanthropic work; he donated $5 million to the London Health Sciences Centre and has also helped Habitat for Humanity.
