We had some players like Alejandro Pedraz and Juan Muņoz who tried at KalPa. Pedraz returned this year to Spain and Muņoz is one of the best Spanish players at the National League. Maybe France of Italy are better chances to develop, even Holland, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland in a better case, but Sweden or Finland are really, at this point, impossible.

For the record, Ivan Gracia is the nearest Spanish player to the NHL. He was selected at the 2nd Round of the 2001 CHL Import Draft and spent some time with the Spokane Chiefs and in 2005, Tom Thompson, scout from the Minnesota Wild, came to Madrid to see him play.
