1936 I believe that was...

Also, elaborate on the Tony Hand bit, him being the Gretzky of British Hockey.. Mention some of his past, drafted, etc.

Also, you could go onto mention players of British heritage; Owen Nolan, Steve Thomas and the fighter, Byron Dafoe...

David Phillips of AHL fame is the only current example I can think of however.
