Habs Youth Connections
There's nothing to do at work so I figured I'd make my day go by quicker.
Carbo talked a lot about wanting his team to be like a family. Part of that is growing through the ranks together, but another part is having things in common. I was thinking of putting together a list of any (interesting) connections/commonalities you can think of with our current youth, though vets are allowed.
Long Islanders, Childhood Friends, Former teammates, 1st Rounders
Birth Place (Brandon MB) & Signed 1st Pro Contract in 07-08
Minnesota Natives Drafted in 07
Ryan McDonagh - D
Scott Kishel - D
Joe Stejskal - D
Andrew Conboy - F
(2006 - David Fischer - D)
Mr. Hockey Winners
Josh Gorges(of the Kelowna Rockets, from what I hear ;))
-Can't think of anyone else at the moment but I know there's more
There's probably plenty more. If anyone knows of any or has time to investigate, I'd love to hear them so we can add them to the list.
Streit, former captain
Thank you, sir
You forgot to mention that all the players are men... yet another connection:sarcasm:
Higgins former captain? Where was this?
Hmm, I could have sworn I heard he was captain in his youth, but upon further review, I can't find any proof. I'll take him off the list. Oh well, maybe future captain? ;)
Bouillon, former captain of Granby in the Q.
Just call me Encyclopedia Habtanica:sarcasm:
EDIT: I know Pacioretty isn't on the team yet, but he and Komi both went to Michigan. Also, Higgy and O'Byrne are both former Ivy Leaguers. (And don't we have somebody at Dartmouth? He'd be in that group too).
TKo former captain of the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins (Nesreddeine became captain afterwards when TKo signed with LA)
O'Byrne and Gleed at Cornell and Hamilton
Kostitsyn/Grabovski/Kostitsyn Team Belarus
