They're all the imports of course (4 per team) but there are some good British guys like David Longstaff who played in the SEL for a season, and of course the great Tony Hand drafted by the Oilers, I've never lined a game where he was playing though
How do you go about getting recognized by British scouts? What's a step below the 2nd tier league? Is it comparable to CHL or SPHL here in the States?
