Matt Mahalek G. Monroe, MI. CAR draft pick

I got a place on Clark Lake near Jackson, MI. Grew up with his parents and their family just down the lakeside.
Originally from Milford, MI. I don't know of any that are from there. But Kocur is living near there now. See him from time to time.

I was born in Amarillo TX, and I've attended a few NHL games. That's about as close as it gets, so far.

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.


They wouldn't be the first Davison residents to claim they're from Flint - that's for sure.

I'm originally from Bay City. I don't think we've got any claims to fame in the hockey world.

And Jarrett Stoll? :lol:

I'm from Yorkton and everyone gets so offended when people say he's from Neudorf. Or Melville.

I always thought Stoll was from Neudorf but never Melville. Is it Yorkton?

Funny how towns claim all the players they can.

I was born in Midland, MI and unfortunately no NHL guys from there, but an extension would certainly be the Detroit area guys. Once the family moved to the Chicago area, there was not any guys from the city we resided in, but then again all of the guys from around the Chicago area itself including Brett Lebda, Mike Brown, Al Montoya, Jared Boll, etc.

I did however attend prep school at Shattuck St. Mary's in Minnesota and had the opportunity to go to school with Zach Parise, Sidney Crosby, Jack Johnson and Drew Stafford as well as having the chance to play on the same team with Crosby, Johnson and Stafford during my last year there.

Kesler graduated from Churchill the year before I started so we have many mutual acquaintances. Literally no one has anything nice to say about the guy. It figures, he said he was an Av's fan growing up, so he was one of "those kids".



Ya, and don't forget the whole Ohio State thing....He may have claimed to be a Av's fan but I can bet you my life savings he celebrated them and probably went to both the 97 and 98 Stanley Cup parades...

Well when your team wins a national championship that year and he scores 180 pts in 60 games you kind of just sit back and enjoy the ride :lol:

Yes, R.I.P. Bob Probert, I remembered him after I posted and I wasn't near a computer, and thanks for reminding me of Domi. Two great fighters, they had some good fights against each other

I'm from Farmington Hills and I played high school baseball at Farmington with Cam Fowler. Greg Stefan is also my neighbor and has been family friends with us my whole life. Those are the only NHLers I can think of right now.
