I had to do this one twice because, when I first tried it, I wanted to pause it and I clicked "Give up?" instead. FML. Great quiz Otnorot.

As well, Charlie Gardiner was born in Edinburgh and Alex Wood in Falkirk.

Thanks Margann! You are absolutely right about Gardiner and Wood. The problem is should they be counted as Europeans (compare Dany Heatley who was born in Germany). Therefore I used eurohockey.net to check if they listed the UK-born goalies as British citizens. Only those who could be confirmed as British citizens were included in the quiz. For instance Gardiner’s nationality is listed as GBR/USA and there are several Canadian-born goalies who have later become European citizens (for instance Jason Muzzatti representing Italy). I planned on having these goalies with double citizenship (or uncertain cases like Alex Wood) as bonus answers, but after numerous readings of the instructions and numerous tries of including the bonus answers, failure was the only result.

You're welcome and okay. I was looking at something different then. I was looking at HockeyReference, not Eurohockey. Danny Taylor, like Gardiner and Wood, is a dual citizen; he has Canadian citizenship, too. (He lives in both Ottawa and my hometown of Kingston, Ontario; he played here for the Frontenacs.) I am very pleased at how well you did on this quiz. It's really good and I hope you make more like this in the future. I have been trying to make quizzes in this format but it's so hard. Well done again! :)
