Default Maps that show NHL player birthplaces

This is cool! Someone's built google maps where you can view NHL player birthplaces by country, state, province or season.

A map of Alberta as an example. Total of 499 players born, ranks 3rd behind Ontario and Quebec.

Interesting that when you zoom out to the global view, almost all the players from North America have been right along the 49th.

I'm so happy, I just found out that Jeff Shantz is from Duchess.
I do a lot of hunting near there, and I can only assume that if Jeff is from around there that he's partied at least once or twice at the Patricia Hotel, which is by far my favoure drinking hole.

Yeaaaa, go Jeff Shantz!

Now look at the stats per capita and Saskatchewan comes out #1.

QuantHockey is unreal for stats. Thanks to OP for this. Can't believe there was a player from Tanzania.

I chuckled about the Pardy reference.

Over double our population and only 29 more hockey players produced.

Take THAT Alberta.




Oh and that is without either Regehr boy .. because they were born in Brazil
