Stala and Poland

Can anyone explain Dave Stala's Polish background? According to wikipedia he was born in Myslenice Poland, but he has no accent and is listed at a non-import. Thanks for the info!

Just watch this:

He's a Canadian citizen now and has been since his parents came to Canada when he was a very little kid. Not sure if you realize this or not but you don't have to be born in Canada to end up a Canadian citizen.

Thanks for the great video!

More to the point, a player doesn't need to be born in Canada or be a Canadian citizen to be considered a non-import.

Thats true. It's also possible for some who are Canadian citizens to not be eligible as a NI. The ones that spend their youth outside Canada.
