If I remember correctly that was one huge reason for bad youth development 10 years ago. I have the bad feeling it still is...
In the DEL every team can dress 10 imports per game. As if that wasn't too much allready, many North Americans can get a German passport easily, thus in reality the number of foreign-trained players is even higher.

If you look at the rosters at http://www.eliteprospects.com/league...hp?leagueid=26 you can see players with dual nationalities.

Augsburg has only 2 German forwards, Ingolstadt only 6 German-trained skaters. These players usually make up the third and fourth lines.

In Switzerland I think there's just 4 imports per team
