#3 Phil Bourque (Again)

1991 – Pittsburgh Penguins – Phil Bourque


Bourque has the distinction of making the list twice, and both instances occurred in the same year.

In this story, Bourque learned the hard way that the Cup does not make a good flotation device. At a party at Mario Lemieux’s house, Phil Bourque jumped into the pool with the trophy. Obviously, the trophy sank to the bottom and had to be fished out. In the process, a piece of the Cup broke off, held together with duct tape. The Cup wouldn’t stay out of the water for long. Just two years later it found its way to the bottom of Patrick Roy’s pool.
