Top 5 states at producing NHL players, #4

Where in the U.S. are the odds most in your favor when it comes to finding good hockey players? This is going just by birth place, so players such as Paul Stastny or Rod Langway won't be considered.

Minnesota won the first poll. Minnesota currently have a population of 5.2 million, and had 31 players in the NHL in the 2008-09 season.
Michigan won the second poll. Michigan currently have a population of 10 million, and had 27 players in the NHL in the 2008-09 season.
Massachusetts won the third poll. Massachusetts currently have a population of 6.5 million, and had 19 players in the NHL for the 2008-09 season.

Here are some notable players, past as well as present:

Alaska: Scott Gomez, Brandon Dubinsky, Matt Carle
Connecticut: Chris Drury, Ron Hainsey, Jonathan Quick
Illinois: Chris Chelios, Joe Corvo, Craig Anderson
Indiana: John-Michael Liles, Jack Johnson, Donald Brashear
New Jersey: Bobby Ryan, Paul Mara, Brian Lawton
New York: Joe Mullen (HHOF member), Billy Burch (HHOF member), Patrick Kane, Dustin Brown, Mathieu Schneider, Brian Gionta
Ohio: Cecil Dillon, Ed Hospodar, Bryan Smolinski
Wisconsin: Gary Suter, Phil Kessel, Ryan Suter

Total NHL games played in 2008-09 by players from these states:
Alaska 278
Connecticut 273
Illinois 391
Indiana 250
New Jersey 167
New York 1394
