Sidney Crosby became a member of hockey’s triple gold club by winning a world championship in 2015. As of May of the same year he joins eight other Canadians among 26 total players to complete the trifecta.

Mike Babcock is the only coach to pull off the feat with world champs gold in 2004, a Stanley Cup with Detroit in 2008, plus 2010 & 2014 Olympic gold medals. There’s also a chance Brenden Morrow and Rick Nash could end up on the list before the end of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs, depending on how their NHL teams do.
