Just thought it was interesting that a Swede has led the league in assists in the last 5/8 years.

McDavid won it this year but 4/7 of the top assist producers were Swedish.

I am not surprised. If I had to guess for those Swedes would they be Backstrom, H.Sedin, Karlsson? and the times it was not a Swede I would guess Thornton or Crosby.

Crosby, McDavid and St. Louis. Crosby has actually only led the league in assists once. Thornton led the league in assists 3 consecutive years post-lockout.

Sweden is an outrageously successful hockey country.
