And then played in Arsenal's academy for a year and their senior team for 8. There's clearly no easy comparison in hockey, because of the age limits of team control, but it's like a team drafting a player, developing him for a couple years, trading him, and then signing him years later claiming he's homegrown. I can't think of an example of this off the top of my head, but that just doesn't sound right.
