TTM: Phil Bourque

  Phil Bourque played in every play-off game for the Pittsburgh Penguins during their back-to-back Stanley Cup wins in 1991 and 1992.  Bourque's name was on the Stanley three times, twice on the outside and once on the inside.  He was the only person to ever has his name on the outside and inside of the Stanley Cup.  Phil Bourque is also infamous for being the player who threw the Stanley Cup into Mario Lemieux's swimming pool.  Bourque would finish his NHL career with the Ottawa Senators before playing three seasons in Germany.

  1. I like Phil Bourque. I remember him as a member of the Chicago Wolves. He was in the stands at a preseason game in the late 1990s (since he was already a lock to make the team). He was wearing a double-breasted jacket, which actually looked kind of sharp. I got in person autographs from him and Rob Brown that day :)
