First ever Italian drafted

He made his way over here in American High School, but congrats to Italy for having their first player drafted!

Except it looks like this guy actually is eligible for their national team, as he has played some games for their junior nat' team.

True, though Kolzig et al could have played for their respective birth countries, too. They just opted to play for other countries they were eligible for.

And I'm not quite ready to give Italia full credit for this one just yet. Based on his surname, birthplace and choice of school, I'm inclined to give those limeys half of the credit on this one.

and if they played in germany for a few years , or the country they were born in.. they could be eligible. Brett Hull. Canadian who plays for the USA.

Larkin was born in the UK because his father was from there. His mother from Italy, spent most of his life in Italy.

here are other stats

he got drafted out of prep school.

Larkin grew up in Cocquio Trevisago, not far from the Pala Albani rink, and wore the bulldog jersey for several years until he left Italy as a 14-year-old to start his education in the United States. There, he attended the Phillips Exeter Academy, a known hockey high school, and two years ago switched from forward to defence.

But Larkin never forgot his Italian roots. He spent the off-seasons in Italy and represented his native country at the 2007 and 2008 IIHF World U18 Championship Division I.

Tom Larkin (14 goals, 38 assists, which sets a new single season record in both categories, and he also has the most career points by a defenseman in school history with 82), and Jeff Reppucci (7 goals, 31 assists).

Forward Dan Weiniger and Defensman Tom Larkin were voted by opposing coaches to the NEPSHIA All League Team.

No, Kölzig only holds German citizenship. In fact it's the only reason he is allowed to play for Germany at all, as he doesn't meet the criteria for dual nationals.

Wolski ceased to be eligible for Poland when he acquired Canadian citizenship, disirregardless of whether he played for Canada or not.
