According to CBC Sports on Friday, three Canadian Olympic gold medalists won the 2014 Stanley Cup when the Los Angeles Kings defeated the New York Rangers 3-2 in double overtime on a game winning goal by Alec Martinez. The gold medalists are Jeff Carter and Drew Doughty of London, Ontario and Mike Richards of Kenora, Ontario.

Doughty, now has won two Stanley Cups and two Olympic gold medals in hockey. He was part of the Canadian team that won a gold medal at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and was Canada's best player when team Canada won a gold medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Richards was on the Canadian roster that won Olympic hockey gold at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. Carter was on the Canadian roster that won Olympic hockey gold at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Like Doughty, this is the second Stanley Cup in three seasons for Carter and Richards. The trio won the Stanley Cup in 2012 when the Kings eliminated the New Jersey Devils in six games.

In 26 playoff games in 2013-14, Carter had ten goals and 15 assists for 25 points. He also led the Kings with four power play goals.

In 26 playoff games in 2013-14, Doughty had five goals and 13 assists for 18 points. He also led the Kings defensemen in assists, points, and shots on goal with 60. Doughty's major asset for the Kings however was his endurance. He led the Kings with average ice time of 28 minutes and 45 seconds per game.

Finally Richards had three goals and seven assists for ten points in 26 playoff games. In an emotional moment during the Stanley Cup celebration, Richards handed the Stanley Cup to Carter. The two have spent four years each with the Philadelphia Flyers and the last three years with the Kings.
