Google Map of NHL Players' Birthplaces

QuantHockey.com

This Google Maps mashup shows the birthplace of NHL players. Unsurprisingly the majority of NHL players seem to have been born in colder climates.

I'm not hugely surprised by the fact that no NHL players originate in Australia. What does surprise me (but I'm sure there's an historical reason) is the disproportionate number of players originating from the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
