Oh and that is without either Regehr boy .. because they were born in Brazil
Richie was actually born in Indonesia as can be seen on the map.

And Alberta gets credit for Shane Doan who was born in Eston, Sk. That's a two point swing.

I find it incredible that Montana has never produced an NHL player.

It's not totally exact. I went to high school with Jason Doig and Cory P*cker and they are listed under Montreal but they lived in DDO just outside of Montreal.

I played with Brandon Reid and he is correctly listed in Kirkland.

I just realized I probably played against Alex Burrows at some point too.

The chances are good. Playing that team was always old time hockey. I've seen players beat up their own coach, players go into the stands, line brawls, guys come of the bench etc.

Minor hockey in Quebec was a lot of fun. The French teams were always good for doing something crazy.

What were Regehr's parents up to that Robyn was born in Brazil and Richie was born in Indonesia? (not asking for any photos of their home or anything, just curious)
