Ya, I didnt just blindly post the aforementioned, the source's used a few years old. I was actually surprised to read it, as Im sure there simply must be a few players who didnt get going until later. Consider as well some of the US born players who may have started at 8, 10 or 12 playing road or even roller hockey, possibly no access to arenas' or leagues until age 14 or so, and who then went on to have productive pro careers. Europe as well, along with the old Soviet Block countries. I wonder at what age any number of those players started playing in organized leagues....
