It's definitely Elektrėnai in Lithuania. A small town with population of 15k but 9 out of 10 boys practice hockey there. Most famous players are Dainius Zubrus and Darius Kasparaitis

And Narva in Estonia. Barely in Estonia, but still.

Definitely Trenčín in Slovakia.
Players from Trencin with NHL experience:
Marián Gáborík, Marián Hossa, Zdeno Chára
Marcel Hossa; Tomáš Kopecký, Sekeráš Ľubomír, Bartovič Milan, Nedorost Andrej; Richard Lintner; Branko Radivojevič, Roman Tvrdoň .... I'm sure I forgot a few.

No. Half Scandinavian though (3/8 Swede and 1/8 Dane).

I've lived on the East Coast my whole life, but I've got a lot of family friends out across the Midwest and Minnesota. While it's clearly the best hockey state in the country, oddly everyone I know (they are from Apple Valley) has no care for hockey. Go figure, especially since multiple professional hockey players have come out of AVHS.

Minnesotans can be weird like that.


AV, yes. I was at the AV-Duluth East state tournament game at the Civic Center - the longest state tournament game in MN history - back in '96 when I was a freshman. Karl Goehring was absurd that game.


AV has been a perennial powerhouse for the longest time. It's tough to come out of their section though which is why they don't make the big dance as often as they should.

Yeah. It's been kind of funny as I've just by coincidence stumbled upon these players being from there. Knowing my way around the place and knowing lots of people in the town (was like a second home during the summers for awhile)Keep in mind, I'm from a small, sleepy New England town 30 miles outside of Boston with a pretty weak hockey program. And as you've pointed out, Minnesota is full of hockey towns so I shouldn't be too shocked.

I have connections with two sort of random towns hockey players happen to come out of. My father is from Livnoia, Michigan, home of Mike Modano, Ryan Kesler, and Torey Krug among others. My grandmother who passed about six years ago was actually good friends with Modano's parents who lived right down the street.

I actually chatted briefly with Dan Sexton many years ago, but I believe he went to Eastview on the other side of town.

Ushuaia, Argentina



Ladakh, India

Would be interesting to have a Hockey town location for each country that plays Hockey, so we can have a list, especially for countries such as Argentina and India where only die hards devout themselves to the World's Greatest Game. I'll work on it and post it up when I can. Should probably be a list of over 50 countries if I'm not mistaken, who knows!

wow, and to think people complain about the altitude in Denver, I'm sure this game was being played at double the elevation!

Erik Karlsson is from a small village called landsbro (roughly 140 miles from Gothenburg). Although he played for Frölunda HC.

A list full of mistakes and inconsistencies. I think this guy should stick to Canadian hockey, since he clearly has no idea what's going on internationally

Gothenburg is first an foremost a football (soccer) town, probably the number 1 football town in Sweden. And Lundqvist is not from Gothenburg.

And Grums?

If the defintion of a hockey town is something like "hockey in the genes" you have Ornskoldsvik and Leksand as prime examples. Leksand might, just as Ambri, fall short because of the "town-factor" though.

I'd definitely add Novokuznetsk to a list of Russian hockey towns. Shame the team has been so weak.

Would you care to explain why Jyväskylä is more of a hockey town than Tampere or Turku, or any other average sized finnish city?

I've lived most part of my life in Jyväskylä and that's why I felf comfortable writing about them. Tampere was an alternative and Turku but I decided to go with Jyväskylä as it's not very often written about.

Aah, okay.

I guess Jyväskylä's status as a hockey town is on rise when you think of their (future) NHL players: Vatanen, Määttä and Honka. The future's looking bright.
