Canadians, by province, playing in Cup Final

Don’t fret, Canadians. All hope is not lost.

A Canadian team hasn’t brought home a Stanley Cup in 21 years, since the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Los Angeles Kings in 1993, but plenty of Canadians will bring home the Cup this summer.

With the Stanley Cup Final starting Wednesday, there will be plenty of Canadian-born hockey players taking to the ice, even though they will be dressed in Los Angeles King and New York Ranger sweaters.

The Kings roll out a roster of 14 Canadian-born players, edging the Rangers by one, eh.

Both finalists had two players win gold medals with Team Canada at the 2013 Sochi Olympics. Kings Jeff Carter and Drew Doughty were both born in London, Ont. Rangers Martin St. Louis, a native of Laval, Que., and Rick Nash from Brampton, Ont., will face off against their national teammates.

And let’s not forget that both head coaches — Alberta’s Darryl Sutter and Quebec’s Alain Vigneualt — hail from north of the border.

Ontario is doing something right, producing nine players for the Kings and eight for the Rangers out of a total 27 Canadians listed on the teams’ full rosters. But only one Canadian has a chance to win his third Stanley Cup.
