To highlight Team Canada's win at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, here's a numerical look at the success Carey Price and Shea Weber have enjoyed on the international stage.

5 - Number of members of the Canadiens organization who were also members of Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey, including goaltender Carey Price, defenseman Shea Weber, assistant general manager Marc Bergevin, goalie coach Stephane Waite, and media relations staffer Dominick Saillant.

16 - Number of consecutive victories Carey Price has rattled off sporting a Team Canada uniform, including his perfect 5-0-0 record at the World Cup of Hockey. Prior to his latest triumph, the 29-year-old netminder also went undefeated at the 2014 Winter Olympics (5-0-0) and the 2007 World Junior Hockey Championship (6-0-0).

1.04 / .963 - Carey Price's goals-against average and save percentage over the course of his current national-team winning streak after leading all regular goaltenders at the World Cup of Hockey in those respective categories during his five outings at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

81 - Number of saves Carey Price has made in tournament-clinching victories for Team Canada in 2007, 2014 and 2016 combined, adding 32 more stops to that tally on Thursday night in a 2-1 victory over Team Europe on home soil.

4,177 - Number of days that have elapsed since Carey Price last suffered a defeat on the international stage dating back to the gold medal game at the 2005 IIHF World Under-18 Hockey Championship on April 24, 2005 when Team Canada dropped a 5-1 decision to Team USA in the Czech Republic.

83 - Percent of the time in which Shea Weber has sported the coveted maple leaf on his chest and managed to help Team Canada come out on top over the course of his career, reaching the top of the podium five out of six times. In addition to a World Cup of Hockey title, the 31-year-old defenseman also boasts wins at the World Junior Hockey Championship (2005) and the World Hockey Championship (2007), to go along with two Olympic gold medals (2010 and 2014).

7 - Team Canada is currently on a 16-game winning streak which began during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and includes the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and the World Cup of Hockey. Seven players have taken part in all three of those tournaments, including Weber, Patrice Bergeron, Sidney Crosby, Drew Doughty, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Jonathan Toews.

16 - Number of shots Shea Weber fired on opposing netminders during six games at the World Cup of Hockey, tops amongst all defensemen in the tournament and three clear of his closest rivals, Brent Burns, Colton Parayko and Roman Josi, who had 13 each.

8,180 - Numbers of days that have elapsed since the last time Marc Bergevin won a title as a member of Team Canada. Before claiming the World Cup of Hockey on Thursday night, he previously won a gold medal as a player at the 1994 World Hockey Championship.
