Im from Lancaster, Pa... Closet I have is one NHLer in Nick Foligno... Played the same high school league as me and have played with him... Also played with David Kolomatis who is in La's farm system and Tyler Hostetter Flyers Farm System.... And for you state fans I have played with Chris Snavley who won the NCAA with Abdelkader and he is from my town... Never made the show though...

The only other close relation I have is a buddy who played at Mercyhurst... He plays sometimes with Tavares, PK Subban and a few others...

My hometown is small but we've had quite a few NHL players from here.
Jon Klemm, Brad Lukowich, and Rob Niedermayer and Scott Niedermayer are some I can think of off the top of my head but I know there's more. There's a few like Stoll that lived here when they played on our WHL team too but that doesn't count. I do feel like I'm missing a big name guy here.....
Oh yeah, and Steve Yzerman

Not as bad as Wyoming but no. South-East Ohio isn't exactly a hockey hotbed, although the Ohio University club team is fun to watch.

Don't think born here but some came through the local college Saint Cloud State.. Matt Cullen, Bret Hedican even brought the cup to SCSU. :)

Little cool fact as well, Ben Hanowski who is drafted by Penguins plays on SCSU right now, I actually played against him in high school and when he broke the record for most all time state scoring, it was against my school.

All kinds of NHLers are from Mississauga, Ontario. I went to the same high school as Matt Moulson, he is older than I am but his brother and I were the same age and have known each other since middle school.

Chris Campoli, Brad Boyes, Jason Spezza, Matt Stajan, John Tavares, Casey Cizikas...

Ryan Sproul is from just down the street as well and my best friend was his reading buddy growing up. What a world.

Currently playing? None. The only person I've been able to find from San Diego is Craig Coxe, who retired in 1992. Of course, my favorite person to claim is Chris Chelios, who went to high school here. Yeah yeah, I know he's firmly rooted in everyone's mind as a Chicagoan, but cut me some slack, we don't get a lot of hockey glory out here.

Well I'm from the Duluth, MN area. None from my actual town but there was Sean Hill, Jamie Langenbrunner, Derek Plante, and Cade Fairchild. I actually played against Cade as a kid. Brett Hull actually lives in the area on a lake and golfs with my cousin if that counts

Flint, MI - Brian Rolston is the only one I can think of, unless you include Tim Thomas and Ken Morrow - but they're both from Davison.

Got some good players from Winnipeg for sure.

Jonathan Toews, Darren Helm, I believe Patrick Sharp was actually born here and then moved to Thunder Bay when he was young, same with Duncan Keith being born here, Cam Barker, Leafs prospect Carter Ashton, went to high school with Dustin Boyd, pretty sure Mark Stone is from here, Cody Eakin, Scott Glennie, Mike Keane, Derek Meech, Colton Orr, Dave Semenko, Alex Steen was born here, Ian White is from the area, Travis Zajac (his cousin's a huge pot head), Terry Sawchuk and of course the fastest hat trick ever....Billy Mosienko.

I like this team.

Kyle Wellwood. He comes back every summer, wearing the same soccer jersey. When people recognize him, he pulls it over his face... exposing his rotund belly.

Stan Bowman and Al Arbour have a daughter together?! I never would have guessed there was something going on between those two...

In more on topic news, no one famous ever came from my home town. NO ONE.

Well, I'm from Halifax so of course about 15 minutes away you have Sidney Crosby in Cole Harbour..

But from Halifax specifically there are only a few active players including Eric Boulton, Andrew Gordon and Brad Marchand,
