Patrice Bergeron Jersey Card

Patrice Bergeron is making quite a nice little reputation for himself on the international stage with Team Canada, what with six world titles now that he has helped secure the 2016 World Cup thanks to scoring the game-tying goal with three minutes left in the decisive game. On the powerplay, no less.

He has also won gold at the Olympics (2010 and 2014), the World Championships (2004), the Spengler Cup (2012), and the World Juniors (2005). He won the MVP title in the latter, playing on a team that included regular national team teammates Sidney Crosby and Carey Price.

The two-time All-Star and Stanley Cup champion (2010-11, becoming the 25th member of the Triple Gold Club) also has three Selke Trophies as the league's best defensive forward, in an era where Jonathan Toews, Pavel Datsyuk, Marian Hossa and Tomas Plekanec are also active (and dominating the two-way aspect of the game).

Here he is sporting his country's colours and the alternate captain's "A", on card #GJ-PB from Upper Deck's 2014-15 Series 2 set and UD Game Jersey sub-set:
It features a red game-worn Team Canada jersey swatch that matches the one he's pictured in.
