It would be insane if an Indian player does make the NHL and Team Canada one day, hopefully happens soon. It would show so much of the countries multiculturalism if one day Team Canada would have an Indian, Chinese and Black player on the roster, who knows maybe in the next 20 years or so
Wouldn't count it out. The children of the first wave of immigrants from South Asia and Pacific Rim are all grown up now and grew up surrounded by the game, obviously it doesn't completely jive with their cultures, but I think we can all agree here hockey's grip is a little too hard to resist for some. The children of those second generation immigrants are having kids of their own and signing them up for hockey now and have been for the last 10-15 years, I wouldn't be surprised to see a *relative* influx of East Indian and Asian prospects in the coming 10 years, particularly from Vancouver and Toronto. There has been a pretty noticeable increase in black prospects in the OHL from the large populations in the GTA, it will be both interesting and exciting to see the development of this. The game is great and everybody in our country should be experiencing it.
