Matti Kaltiainen, the Bruins' goalie prospect is from Finland and currently playing in Boston College.

Some SM-liiga players that have played U.S. College hockey: Toni Söderholm (UMass-Amherst/HIFK), Mikko Ruutu (Clarkson University/Jokerit (Senators draft pick), Samuli Jalkanen (UMass-Amherst/Jokerit), Markus Helanen (UMass-Amherst/Jokerit), ...

From what I heard from a friend who spent a couple of years in the US playing college soccer, the opportunity to combine education with sports is quite unique, but it demands a lot of activity from the athlete him/herself to find the right place, financing etc.
