Has any player ever won the NCAA Division One and Stanley Cup championships in the same year before? I would think it has happened , there is just not a source for the info, that I can find.

Ken Morrow went on to win the Stanley Cup a few months after the Miracle on Ice, so I guess there's that.

Brendan Shanahan did the same in 2002.

No, it has never been done. BC and NYR's Chris Kreider has a shot to be the first one to do it.

Neil Broten came very close. Won the National Championship in 1979, miracle on ice in 1980, NCAA runner up in 81, Stanley cup runner up in 81. Not a bad couple of years

A guy once won the Conn Smythe Trophy the year BEFORE he won the Calder Trophy and while he was a full-time college student. How unusual is that?

Not too shabby :p:D:D

Broten is the only player (to date) to play in the final NCAA game and the final NHL game of the same season.

Imagine telling the ladies that you won a NCAA national title, than a Stanley cup. (not that you'd have too).

oh and I am pretty sure Bill Russell won the NCAA, the olympics and the NBA championship either all in the same calendar year, or all consecutively

I believe he's the only US player to win a national championship, Gold Medal, and Stanley Cup in his career. He was also the first Hobey Baker winner and the first American-born player to record 100pts in an NHL season. Pretty impressive career.

I also believe he's the only guy to ever <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boJZQXFMHFU">fight</a> Wayne Gretzky :)

Dryden played in the 1969 national title game and then won the Stanley cup in his rookie season, but he didn't even play in 69-70 and then played most of the 70-71 season in the AHL before finally having his rookie season in 71-72.

I know what I would've said after the '80 game.....
