Where Oh Where are they From?!

Portland fans are known for being diehard for their city and its sports teams.  This is no different when talking about the Portland Winterhawks, but have you ever wondered where all the players who now represent your city came from?

The Winterhawks are quite an eclectic bunch. While most of its players are our neighbors to the north in Canada, hometowns can be found from California, all the way to Denmark. From places as warm as Arizona to the frigid land of Moscow.

While many of the Winterhawks are looking forward to their future homes and careers, it is important to remember where you come from.  This interactive map will allow you to see where your favorite players got their start as well as give some information on their hometowns.

    So many Canadians?! Is it harder to play for teams in Canada than the US?

      I’ve heard that a lot of top tier US players prefer to go the Division 1 route. Canada also has a much larger talent pool for hockey so they make up the majority of just about every team.
