    Default Stanley Cup and Gold Medal in the Same Year?

    HI all,

    I"m trying to find a stat that I can not seem to round up on a google search.. So, I was wondering if any here might have an answer. .

    Does anyone have a list of players that have won both a Stanley Cup and Gold Medal in the same year? Obviously, there are 5 Pens this year that have a shot at the feat..

    Good luck with that one. That sounds like something you'd have to research on your own but it shouldn't be too hard considering you only have to check out the roster of the team that won the stanley cup the same year of a winter olympics and see who won the olympics...

    I'll say this though.. The USSR dominated through the 60's and 70's. they won 4 straight Gold medals so you would be talking 16 years if I'm correct (1976, 1972, 1968, 1962) . Not a ton of Russian players back then

    NHL players started playing Olympic hockey sometime around '92 or '94 I believe. So you only have to go back that far in research. Prior to that it was 'amateurs' only.

    I know former NY Islanders (& BGSU Falcon) D-man Ken Morrow was the first to do it in 1980. I grew up near Bowling Green, OH.

    From Wiki....
    Morrow played for the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team that won the gold medal in an event known as the Miracle on Ice during the 1980 Winter Olympics. Selected 68th overall in the 1976 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders, Morrow joined the Islanders immediately after the Olympics. He helped them win their first Stanley Cup in 1980, making him the first player to win the Olympic Gold and an NHL championship in one season. He was an integral member of all four Islanders Stanley Cup teams in 1980, 1981, 1982 and 1983; furthermore, although Morrow was never a goal-scorer, during the playoffs the Isles often benefited from his clutch goal scoring at key times.

    I also believe that Steve Yzerman and Brendan Shanahan did it in 2002 .

    I think Yzerman and Shanahan are the only two to (recently) do it.

    And, technically, none of those players have a shot unless they win the Cup again this season

    You'd think it wouldve been more common, but I think it is definitely much more rarer. Granted it's easier in more recent years because of the amount of NHL players playing.

    If one of Russia, USA or Canada wins, then I'd say it's likely you'll see gold medals and stanley cups combining this year

    Well, I did find this. . A triple gold club list. I do know that Jagr and Lemieux have both won stanley cups and gold medals..... But, I still haven't found the list i'm looking for, just yet.

    --------------------

    There have been 19 players who are in the "triple gold" club:

    Tomas Jonsson (1994)
    Håkan Loob (1994)
    Mats Näslund (1994)
    Valeri Kamensky (1996)
    Alexei Gusarov (1996)
    Peter Forsberg (1996)
    Vyacheslav Fetisov (1997)
    Igor Larionov (1997)
    Alexander Mogilny (2000)
    Vladimir Malakhov (2000)
    Joe Sakic (2002)
    Brendan Shanahan (2002)
    Rob Blake (2002)
    Scott Niedermayer (2004)
    Jaromir Jagr (2005)
    Jiri Slegr (2005)
    Nicklas Lidström (2006)
    Fredrik Modin (2006)
    Chris Pronger (2007)

    1994
    The inaugural members were Tomas Jonsson, Håkan Loob, and Mats Näslund who "founded" it when they won the Olympics in Lillehammer with Sweden. They had all won the World Championships together in 1991 (Loob in 1987 as well), but separately won the Stanley Cup (Jonsson in 1982 and 1983 with the New York Islanders, Loob in 1989 with the Calgary Flames, and Näslund in 1986 with Montreal Canadiens).


    1996
    The first two of players from Russia (Valeri Kamensky and Alexei Gusarov) joined along with another Swede Peter Forsberg (who was also at Lillehammer), when the Colorado Avalanche won the Stanley Cup. Both played for the USSR, Kamensky and Gusarov had won the 1988 Olympics as well as the 1989 and 1990 World Championships (Kamensky in 1986 as well). Forsberg had won the World Championships in 1992 (and did so again in 1998) and the Olympics in 1994 (and won that again for the second time in 2006).


    1997
    Vyacheslav Fetisov and Igor Larionov won the Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings, and both did so again in 1998 (Larionov again in 2002). The two players together with Peter Forsberg are the only ones to win enough titles to be in the Triple Gold Club twice: They both won at the Olympics in 1984 and 1988, and they both won the World Championships in 1982, 1983, 1986, and 1989 (Fetisov also won in 1978, 1981, and 1990).


    2000
    Alexander Mogilny and Vladimir Malakhov won the Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils. Mogilny previously won the at the 1988 Olympics and the 1989 World Championships playing for the Soviets, while Malakhov won the 1990 World Championships playing for the Soviets and at the 1992 Olympics playing for the Unified Team.


    2002
    Joe Sakic, Brendan Shanahan, and Rob Blake became the first Canadians to join when Canada won at the Salt Lake Olympics. They all won the World Championships with Canada in 1994 (Blake in 1997 as well). Sakic and Blake won the Stanley Cup in 2001 with the Colorado Avalanche (Sakic in 1996 as well) and Shanahan won it in 1997 and 1998 (and later in 2002) with the Detroit Red Wings.[2]


    2004
    Scott Niedermayer won the World Championships in 2004, the gold medal at the Salt Lake Games in 2002), and has won four Stanley Cups, three with the New Jersey Devils (1995, 2000, and 2003) and one with the Anaheim Ducks (2007).


    2005
    Jaromir Jagr and Jiri Slegr were the first Czechs to achieve the feat when they won the World Championships. Jagr won the Stanley Cup twice with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 and 1992, while Slegr won it with the Detroit Red Wings in 2002 when he played one game in the finals due to Jiri Fischer having been suspended. The two were also teammates at the 1998 Nagano Olympics.


    2006
    Nicklas Lidström and Fredrik Modin won Olympic Gold in Torino. They both won the World Championships for Sweden, Lidström in 1991 and Modin in 1998. Lidström won the Stanley Cup three times with the Detroit Red Wings in 1997, 1998 and 2002, while Modin won the Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004.


    2007
    Chris Pronger won the Stanley Cup in 2007 with the Anaheim Ducks. He won the World Championships for Canada in 1997 and won the Olympic Gold medal in 2002 for Canada.



    Additionally, Forsberg, Fetisov, and Larionov are the only players who are two-time members of the Triple Gold club.

    Furthermore, the Canada Cup, later the World Cup of Hockey, is a very high regarded international hockey tournament that is not included in the Triple Gold Club.

    Vyacheslav Fetisov, Igor Larionov, and Brendan Shanahan are the only three players in the Triple Gold Club who have also won the Canada Cup (Fetisov and Larionov in 1981; Shanahan in 1991).

    Joe Sakic, Chris Pronger and Scott Niedermayer are the only players in the Triple Gold Club who have also won the World Cup of Hockey (2004).

    Remarkably, Fetisov (1976, 1977 and 1978), Larionov (1979 and 1980), Sakic (1988), and Niedermayer (1991) have also won a World Junior Hockey Championship gold medal. Shanahan played in the tournament in 1987 but Canada was disqualified from the tournament after brawling with the USSR in their final match. Canada was leading 4-2 at the time and was playing for the gold medal.

    I don't know about winning both in the same year, but the pressure put on Sidney to win a gold medal in this Olympics should make his run to another Stanley Cup rather mundane.

    Now there is some trivia.
