http://www.newyorkislanders.com/pressbox/archive.asp?id=892 Frans Nielsen agreed to a contract with the Isles, making him likely to be the first ever Danish player in the NHL sometime over the next 2 seasons. He's a supposedly a pretty slick 2 way center with excellent playmaking abilities and should be a major player in Bridgeport next season. Given the Isles lack of center depth I wouldn't be surprised to see him be one of the first injury callups. Pretty cool. It's surprising that no Dane has ever played in the NHL before considering how many Swedes and Finns there are. It's always confused me how Norway and Denmark don't churn out NHLers like the other Scandanavian countries do.
