Of the 276 players competing in the Winter Olympics only 69 left Vancouver with a medal. Of those, most play in the NHL (64) with the remainder skating in the KHL (4) and SEL (1). The medal winners - Canada (G), USA (S), Finland (B) - are sorted below by NHL team.

Of the 30 NHL teams that loaned talent to the Winter Games, 23 are welcoming back medalists. Among them, Anaheim leads the medal count (7) with San Jose gathering the most gold (4). Only three teams (Anaheim, Carolina, Vancouver) have players from each medal winner.

Let's hope this isn't the last Winter Olympics with NHL talent.
