An awesome photo of Matthew Tkachuk and Jayson Tatum went viral on Monday after Tkachuk’s Florida Panthers won the Stanley Cup.

The Panthers beat the Edmonton Oilers 2-1 in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final at Amerant Bank Arena in Sunrise, Fla. to win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. The win also gave Matthew Tkachuk his first Stanley Cup, which made for some incredibly coincidental timing. Tatum just won his first NBA championship exactly a week ago with the Boston Celtics.

Tkachuk and Tatum attended Chaminade College Preparatory School together in Creve Coeur, Missouri.

Who would have imagined those two one day winning championships exactly a week apart?

That is pretty cool.

Both players are 26 and were top-10 picks in their respective sports. And they both won championships a week apart.
