Molson Canadian Hockey House will also host the International Ice Hockey Federation’s Triple Gold Ceremony on February 22, officially inducting 22 players to the Triple Gold Club, hockey’s most exclusive society for players who have won the three major team prizes in hockey – Olympic gold, IIHF World Championship gold and the Stanley Cup.
