The youth national teams do pretty well, not sure about the youth team clubs though.

Well, then again, there's quite a lot of hockeyplayers without "canadian" names. Gretzky, Sakic, Chelios etc

Strange, I can't recall Rosenberg ever being popular, since he was always put aside in favor of other strikers in the national team.
