Not the same draft class, but look up all of Ozzy Wiesblatt's brothers (and 1 sister)

Brothers: Ocean, Orca and Oasiz

Sister: Oceania

 

All 4 brothers play hockey spread out among NCAA, WHL, and Bantam

Imagine being Ocean and your sister is Oceania. 

 

 

I think the names will get weirder as we're into Gen Z now and it's normal for kids to be named something like Silver Surfer or whatever.

I like Chase Yoder.... sounds like a very wise young man with a bit of a wild side to him. He would make a good Jedi warrior I think.

 

 

Along with "Zayde Wisdom" from Kingston we would have a formable pair.

Yeah, this list isn't complete with many of the Finnish players... looks like they put the letter blender on overdrivea

 

Case in point, Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen... Puljujarvi... Teuvo Teravainen... for those old school fans Janne Niinimaa...

i’ld like to have someone pronounce french names. they are always different than the way they sound to me. with so many french ancestors, it would be good to be able to say their names right.

I already have two kids. If my vasectomy didn't work, and we somehow ... I'm gonna try to talk my wife into naming child #3 "Whatever".

Don’t know if NHL 96 counts, but I remember icing a multicultural first line of Juan Tymer, Paol Walter and the aptly named Agit Tator. We crushed, to no one’s surprise.

There have always been weirdos giving kids weird names. Generation is irrelevant. Frank Zappa named his kids "Dweezil" and "Moon Unit".
