is most likely the best defenceman the Dutch National Team has, at the moment. It might not show by just looking at his stats, but I've seen him play at the 2010 World Championship in Tilburg and he was easily the most reliable D the Dutch team had.
is the current team top scorer of the University of Alaska-Anchorage. Alaska-Anchorage is not a high flying team, which may be the reason why his personal stats don't stand out so much. His older brother
had a try-out with the Toronto Marlies recently and currently plays in the Dutch Elite League with Eindhoven. Their father
was the goaltender for the Dutch National Team during the bigger part of the eighties.
