With gold medal winners in each of the last three Olympic Games ( Paul Kariya of Canada in 2002, Sammy Pahlsson of Sweden in 2006 and Niedermayer, Getzlaf, and Perry here), the Ducks join the Philadelphia Flyers and Vancouver Canucks as the only NHL teams to have gold medalists in the last three such tournaments (2002-2010).
The Ducks, Dallas Stars and Flyers are the only three NHL teams to have multiple medalists in each of the four Olympic tournaments involving NHL players (1998-2002-2006-2010).
The Ducks also became just the second NHL team to have players with multiple medals of each color in an Olympic tournament (2002 Red Wings, two gold, two silver, three bronze).
In all, Ducks players have won 15 medals in the four Olympic Games involving NHL players, second only to the Red Wings' 16. The New York Rangers players have also won 15.
