Same for pretty much every province out here, btw. And trust me when I say the trend was a lot worse around the 90s, when times were even harder out here.

Edit: Here are the last decade+ of hockey registration numbers for Hockey Canada.
I have posted the NHL players from the maritime s in chronological order in the following

The biggest impact has been Nova Scotia.

This has happened in the maritime, BC and virtually every US state as well.

And of course the explosion of talent from Europe.
