Bruins Vs. Canucks, Game 7: Either Roberto Luongo Or Patrice Bergeron Will Enter 'Triple Gold Club'

The Triple Gold Club in hockey is a pretty small, elite group, and on Wednesday night, either Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins or Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks will join it’s ranks. 

The Triple Gold Club consists of those people in hockey that have won the Stanley Cup, an Olympic Gold Medal and the IIHF World Championship, and it’s a class of just 24 players and one coach.

Both Bergeron and Luongo were members of the 2010 Canadian Olympic Team that won gold in Vancouver last February. Luongo won his IIHF Gold with Canada in 2003 and repeated the feat in 2004. Bergeron was a member of that 2004 Canadian Team that won the World Championship for Canada. He would have won gold with Canada again in 2007, but he declined the invite after suffering injuries in the NHL season.

One player will complete the trifecta on Wednesday night when they lift the Stanley Cup. The most recent inductee to the club was Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks, who won IIHF Gold in 2007 with Canada, the 2010 Olympic Gold and the Stanley Cup in 2010 as well.
