NASH_RickRick Nash has enjoyed great success in a Canadian uniform, winning both Olympic and world championship gold.

In his second Olympic appearance at Vancouver 2010, Nash helped Canada win gold on home ice after the disappointing seventh place finish at Turin 2006. He had made his IIHF World Championship debut in 2005 when Canada captured silver. In 2007, he scored six goals and five assists to be named MVP of the IIHF World Championship as Canada won the gold medal. In 2008, he contributed six goals and seven assists as Canada won silver on home ice in Quebec City.

Nash served as the Canadian captain at the 2011 World Championship, almost a decade after he won silver at the 2002 IIHF World Junior Championship.
