All Italian NHL Team

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

that definitely makes him more Italian than Dutch to me, considering the fact that Belgians and Dutch are two different (and veeery distinct) nations ;)

and if his dad was of Belgian descent, than Vanbiesbrouck could even be original (Flemish) surname...

Wiki has listed him as an Hockey player withbitalian descend.

Here is the list.

Very good but not enough active players to make a team.

Bertuzzi was born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario. His father, Albert Bertuzzi, is an Italian-Canadian who worked as a miner and in the window-washing business. When Bertuzzi was a teenager, Albert survived a near-fatal car accident in which he was thrown from the vehicle through the windshield. His father has stated that he was proud of his own local reputation as a "dirty player" and referred to it as a "Bertuzzi trait".[1] He has said that Bertuzzi takes after him in regards to his toughness and aggression. Bertuzzi's great-uncle, Larry Bertuzzi, is a Toronto-based lawyer who has done arbitration work for the NHL.[4]

Bertuzzi is definitely of Italian descent. I made the trip to Italy this year to see where my family came from in Cavasso Nuovo in the province of Friuli in Northern Italy and I was surprised to see a great many Bertuzzi's in this small village... so I think Bert may be Friulan!

There are several notable people with the surname Bertuzzi:

Irnerio Bertuzzi (1919–1962), Italian airplane pilot

Todd Bertuzzi (born 1975), Canadian hockey player

Gian Ortensio Bertuzzi, Italian Mannerist painter

Maria Teresa Bertuzzi, Italian mayor of Coppara[citation needed]

Nicola Bertuzzi, Italian Rococo painter

From Wiki.

Dino Ciccarelli and Mark Recchi should also be in here somewhere

Two excellent players. However I have made the team from active NHL players.

What about my boy Enrico Ciccone?

Or how about Gino Odjick? Don't remember if he was French or Italian. Gino is an Italian name.

I have found these on Odjick

Odjick, a full blooded Algonquin Indian who grew up in poverty on the Maniwaki reserve in Quebec, shouldn't have lasted as long as he did in the NHL. But the two were inseparable, and Odjick acted as the link between the team and its distant superstar.
