    Which European prospects for the 2011 draft have personal ties to North America?

    Nicklas Jensen (Denmark) is the son of Richmond Hill, Ontario (Canada) native Dan Jensen. Has family living in the town of approximately 185,000 people. Also the hometown of Mike Cammalleri, Theo Peckham, Derek Joslin, John McFarland, Jordan Binnington (also 2011), etc.

    Mika Zibanejad (Sweden) has family that live in Atlanta, Georgia (USA).

    David Musil (Czech) was born in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) and lived in North America when he was young. His father returned to Europe and Musil spent most of his developmental years in Czech Republic.

    Vladislav Namestnikov (Russia) has two uncles that played in the NHL. Ivan Novoseltsev and Slava Kozlov.

    Anyone else?
