๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Set Of Six U.S. Women’s Players Join Triple Gold Club

By virtue of the United States’ first Olympic Gold medal in 20 years, six new skaters from Team USA have joined the women’s version of the Triple Gold Club, all adding Olympic Gold to their World Championship Gold and Clarkson Cup titles.

The group includes forwards team captain Meghan Duggan, Hilary Knight, Gigi Marvin and Brianna Decker, along with defenders Kacey Bellamy and Monique Lamoureux, all of whom won their Clarkson Cups with the Boston Blades of the National Women’s Hockey League. Bellamy, Duggan, Knight and Marvin all won their first Clarkson Cup in 2013 against the Montrรฉal Canadiennes, while Lamoureux and Decker won their first Cups in 2015, also against Montrรฉal.

The same core four (Bellamy, Duggan, Knight and Marvin) all won their first World Championships over Canada at the 2008 Worlds in Harbin, China,ย with Lamoureux winning her first Worlds a year later in Finland andย Decker’s first in 2011 in Zรผrich. However, due to the two-decade long drought of American Olympic Gold, there was a long wait to join the Club, which before this win had just one American member,ย Jenny Schmidgall (later Potter), who won on the inaugural 1998 Nagano team, eventually joining the Club in 2010 after winning the Clarkson Cup with Minnesota.

Our congratulations go out toย Kacey Bellamy, Brianna Decker, Meghan Duggan, Hilary Knight, Monique Lamoureux and Gigi Marvin on their achievement in joining this prestigious club of international hockey stars!
