I know their best player Eliezer Sherbatov is Jewish. Played a couple of years in the Q http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=45166

Some decent Non-NHL players not listed in the OP:

Ethan Werek http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=21591
Oren Eizenman http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=14463
Maxim Birbraer http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=15090

That could complete the forward lineup if there is nobody better

Dov Grumet-Morris in net.

Systemfel 03-23-2013 09:31 PM

Josh Tordjman for goalie as well.

It's not really a "percent" thing -- you're kinda in or out -- and it can get pretty complicated but centers around cultural identity. Traditionally, Jewish ethnic membership was matrilineal -- if your mother is Jewish, so were you, and that's still the way it is for very conservative groups. Cammalleri's mother is Jewish, so that's passed on.

In Reform and other more liberal Jewish schools of thought, though, you are considered Jewish if you had at least one Jewish parent (mother OR father) and were raised with a Jewish identity. Then there's converts to Judaism, with differing opinions between different sects about how that works.

For the players I posted, their wikipedia pages said they are Jewish. They all also have Isreali citizenship according to Elite Prospets.

Here are a couple you missed. And perhaps by their non-inclusion in the article, a few you did list are not :)

Nashville Transplant 04-12-2013 11:46 AM

And then there's this even better list which notes the great Cory Pecker is Jewish, but he may have to be cut from the team. Lol.

Marchand is jewish? Lolwhat

Shootmaster_44 04-13-2013 09:37 PM

Wasn't hockey a sport at the Maccabai Games? I remember seeing a Team Canada jersey at the Hall of Fame. I'm not sure who played on it nor who all played n the tournament, but that whole tournament would be all-Jewish teams.

Swedish playmaker* 04-14-2013 10:50 PM

I don't think Marchand is jewish, nor are the Schultz's. But you forgot Nick Leddy, whom is jewish.

Shadowthrone 04-15-2013 12:06 AM

Evan Kaufmann's a Jew. Read an interview with him a while ago about how it feels to play in Germany and especially in Nürnberg, where the Arena is right beside a former Nazi rallying site.

Fun to see Eric Nystrom in the link two replies after yours. I'm swedish and have always seen him as some kind of descendent of ours, but i guess i was wrong lol. He can be both. Come to think of it though, perhaps Bob was jewish as well?

The nystroms are jewish... but being jewish doesn't mean you can't be swedish. One is a nationality, the other a religion / culture. I'm sure at some point in time that family lived in that area.

Bob converted to Judaism, possibly in order to marry Eric's mom.

Saw this on TSN about the Canada-Israel Hockey School. http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=425877

I like promoting hockey and all, but I'm not sure if it's the right sport to promote peace between Israelis and Palestinians.

Oilers Chick 06-20-2013 03:23 PM

Former BU defenseman Colby Cohen is also Jewish.

doubtful, no sources to back it up; maybe it was just a nose joke?

El Cohiba 06-22-2013 09:31 AM

Surprised not to see Max Birbraer on there

mattihp 06-24-2013 01:35 AM

Nicklas Grossman is also jewish.

VladNYC* 06-24-2013 01:01 PM

Then there is the Malkin thing of guys who are ethnically ashkenazi jews but are Christian. Needless to say...it's complicated.
