Habs Youth Connections

There's nothing to do at work so I figured I'd make my day go by quicker.

Carbo talked a lot about wanting his team to be like a family. Part of that is growing through the ranks together, but another part is having things in common. I was thinking of putting together a list of any (interesting) connections/commonalities you can think of with our current youth, though vets are allowed.

Brothers
Sergei Kostitsyn
Andrei Kostitsyn
&
Guillaume Latendresse
Olivier Latendresse

Long Islanders, Childhood Friends, Former teammates, 1st Rounders
Chris Higgins
Mike Komisarek

Former Teammates
Kooteney
Ben Maxwell
Ryan Russell

Cornell
O'Byrne
Gleed

Carle

-Can't think of anyone else at the moment but I know there's more

There's probably plenty more. If anyone knows of any or has time to investigate, I'd love to hear them so we can add them to the list.

Cheers!

Hmm, I could have sworn I heard he was captain in his youth, but upon further review, I can't find any proof. I'll take him off the list. Oh well, maybe future captain?

I think it was in Canadiens magazine. They asked him if he remembered the first time he had a letter on his jersey, or something like that. If I'm thinking of the right interview, he said he's still buddies with the kid who was co-captain. I'll try to find it later.

Just call me Encyclopedia Habtanica

EDIT: I know Pacioretty isn't on the team yet, but he and Komi both went to Michigan. Also, Higgy and O'Byrne are both former Ivy Leaguers. (And don't we have somebody at Dartmouth? He'd be in that group too).
