There could also be the fact that in the eyes of hockey, Liam Stewart isn't British.
Ye I noticed even guys like Jack Prince didn't play U20 until he was 19 years old. I do agree that Liam Stewart is as unbritish as it gets but guys like Conway and Perlini are just as British as Ben O'Connor IMO. Granted I'm not British
