Great Hockey Spawning Grounds

Obviously, a giant majority of these will be Canadian, so I will plug for Ornskoldsvik. My starting lineup is:

Naslund-Sedin-Sedin
Hedman-Forsberg (ya, he's going to have to play D)


annnnd, because I am not aware of any goalies from Ornskoldvik, I will pull the goalie and put Anders Hedberg out there, too!

Looking forward to seeing some great Canadian cities, and any others... especially small towns that produce more per capita.

Great Canucks forward line from the tiny town of Duncan

Greg Adams (not the good one, though) and the Courtnall Bros.

What's the name of the other brother?

I knew a guy who worked here (Westbank) at Home Depot, who claimed to be a Sutter brother.

****. that's crazy. That is him. About 3 threads just came together in my head. I remember my friend worked with Gary, and he ws seriously bitter about being the Sutter that didn't make the NHL, even if that's not what is held as true. I remember the Home Depot staff winning the lottery, but i never connected that to the "Sutter that my buddy knew"... and then this thread, here. Crazy.

Saskatchewan Census Division 11 (population: 270,000) - a region which includes the city of Saskatoon and a few other nearby towns.

Propp-Lach-Howe
Baun-Van Impe
Rayner

3 Hall of Famers, including a generational talent, and the other 3 players all played at least 10 seasons in the NHL. Not too shabby.

Believe it or not...

My hometown is the only town in Canada who had more F-1 drivers than Stanley Cup Champions.

If you count Fruitvale (which is basically rural Trail), you can add Adam Deadmarsh

OP already did that city.

Not alot more of the pros come from there as its the home of a hockey school. Guys like Tomas Jonsson, Samuel Påhlsson, Kallur and so on where born elsewhere. We could add Sundström to the list. I'll do Värmland as it has no major city of note except for Karlstad.

Team Värmland (players from Karlstad markedd with a *)

Coach: Conny Evensson

B-Å Gustafsson - Ulf Sterner - Arvedsson*
Pelle Prestberg - Thomas Steen - Peter Nordström

Thommie Bergman - Tommy Samuelsson

Nice work. I was looking for a Saskatchewan town last night, to little avail. I like what you came up with.

I should have titles this something like, "The Real Mystery, Alaska" I love that some small, nowhere towns, have come up with so much talent.

Regina, Saskatchewan (metro 210,000)

Eberle - Getzlaf - Hartnell (or Mike Sillinger or Doug Wickenheiser)
Murray - Terry Harper

Dubnyk

Always been a hockey town, but we've really exploded in the past few years.

I had thought Regina was much bigger than that. That is an impressive list of players... many more than what you listed, too.

I grew up in burnaby which is a suburb next door to Vancouver and we rarely ever get outdoor ice, more ball hockey than ice hockey for kids.

Burnaby Joe sakic , as he is called around here
Cliff Ronning
RNH

Chris Josph and Karl Alzner on D

Jason LaBarbera in net.

Glenn Anderson was born in Vancouver but grew up in North Burnaby, Paul Kariya in North Van

Just over 50 players in total who were born in Vancouver who played in
the NHL, whereas Montreal's around 250 & change, Toronto close to 400.

BC really didn't produce any players for the NHL pre expansion though.

Not sure when the Burnaby and north shore winter clubs really took off but they drive alot of prospects these days.

Make that six Sutter brothers.....Brian, Daryl, Duane, Brent, and the twins, Ron and Rich. That's two centres, two Left wngs and two right wings. No dmen or goalies though and they call themselves a hockey town!

Ya, thats very true. Prior to the 67 Expansion just two guys, John Ferguson of course, and another guy by the name of Rich Healey who played a single game for Detroit in the early 60's.... Burnabys' Winter Club was founded in 56, North Shore in 58.
