Haiskenan played for Portage before going to the USHL, and Sean Collins played in the MJHL

Ithaca is urban by comparison.

Portage la Prairie is an hour west of Winnipeg. Trans-Canadian Hwy runs through. Not that remote. Not that big, either, about half Ithaca's population.

Ithaca produced Dustin Brown. No reason why Portage can't produce at least a fine college hockey player, even if Portage is smaller than Ithaca. How many D-1 hockey players came out of New York City or Hong Kong last year?

I don't think anyone was implying a small, Canadian town couldn't produce a good hockey player - merely an off-the-cuff observation.

Having followed the Islanders during their glory years, I know that Moose Jaw, roughly the population of Ithaca, has produced many fine NHL players. I always got a kick out of the town name and imagined that it was a town of bear-skin shelters located above the arctic circle (it is actually not that far from Regina and connected by highways and rail lines).

Of course, there is probably a 10:1 population correction factor for the Canada:US hockey playing population.
Fun Fact: demonym is Moose Javian

Clark Gillies FTW, though of course everybody also knows it from the fashion show in Slap Shot.

Then there's Joe Dragon..... I don't recall the name of his hometown... I just remember hearing that it was 1000 miles north of Edmonton...I'm betting that it too was a pretty small town..

Fort Smith, Northwest Territories.

60th parallel north. Same as Saint Petersburg, Uppsala, and for you Risk fans, Kamchatka.

Mining. Seems lovely.

I also recall them saying on the radio that Joe couldn't go home for Christmas because he didn't have time to make it home & back in the allotted time... Now, THAT's a long trip!!

Sled dogs need rest.

My favorite Joe Dragon story was his frat putting a personal in the Sun reading, "No, Joe. Dragon Day wasn't started for you."

And now he's even farther north -- Yellowknife, NWT. Ithaca in winter must have felt downright balmy for him.

IIRC correctly, the Ferguson brothers came from Moose Jaw. We'd do OK with another set.

It's now 3 degrees in Rochester, colder than Yellowknife at 7. Worse if you consider windchill, -17 compared to -5.

Nice plug for recruit Jack O'Leary, who is probably due for arrival 2019-20

Sounds a lot like Cam Donaldson--who among us wouldn't sign up for that?
