Canada’s Corey Perry is the 27th member of hockey’s most exclusive club.

After winning a Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007, he was on Canada’s Olympic champion team in both 2010 and 2014.

Now that he has captained a World Championship gold, he is a member of the Triple Gold Club. Canada now has ten such members, followed by Sweden with nine, Russia six, and Czech Republic two.

Last year countryman Sidney Crosby was the 26th member after Canada’s win in Prague. Perry also won World Junior Championship gold in 2005 with Crosby.

The 31-year-old Perry was presented with his TGC pin by IIHF President Rene Fasel just moments after stepping off the ice with a gold medal around his neck.
