NHL Players From Humble Beginnings?

Much is made about how expensive hockey is to play and we also see so many families that have produces multiple NHL players (this upcoming draft features a bunch of sons of former NHLers). The vast majority of NHL players come from middle-upper class backgrounds. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any players that overcame the socioeconomic odds to become great hockey players. The only former one I can think of is John Madden who grew up in public housing, and took a long road to the NHL that involved working his way all the way up from lowly Junior C.
