Wow, Evgeny Grachev is from way out there...I've seen some newspapers from Amur-Khaborovsk and what not, it's a very "simple" area...surprised a talent like him could come out of there...

Great find.

As you should be. But he moved to New Jersey when he was like 2 years old, so he wasn't trained here.

One who didn't know anything about hockey would suppose there would be a lot of players from Iceland.

How come there are no players from Iceland?

It is not a popular sport in Iceland really, the population doesn't embrace it...they have a national team at last check but when Nikolai Antropov can score 26 points in one game on it, you know you have some bugs to work out...but it's very unpopular there vs. muscle-related activities plus soccer and handball...
