This quiz includes all players not born in Canada, USA, Russia, Czech Republic, Sweden, Finland or Slovakia who are currently on an NHL roster, a free agent who played in the NHL last year, or a top-end prospect with NHL experience. There are also quite a few bonus goodies for those who remember "foreign" players from the recent past. Feel free to add anyone I've missed.
Oh, and if anyone can tell me how to get all the German players in one heading, please do. I tried a bunch of different orders, but couldn't get it to work.

i tried "Park" and it wasn't accepted

put all the bonus answers at the bottom, it's screwing up the results.

I put the bonuses at the bottom, but the German players are still split up. Strange. Park is fixed.

Nikolay Zherdev was born in Ukraine. (He was born in Kiev.) Patrick Thoresen was not on the Norway list and he should have been because he played before 2009.
