Lucas Edmonds: From North Bay to Sweden, and, Hopefully, the NHL

There are just under 4,000 miles between North Bay, Ont., where Lucas Edmonds was born and Umeå, Sweden, where his dad, Randy Edmonds, coached the year Lucas was born.

Depending on stops, upcoming flights can be anywhere from 18 hours to 32 hours, ranging from $1,400 and $1,800.

North Bay isn’t a typical home for Swedish folks, either. Sudbury? Maybe. Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto are also popular destinations for Swedish Canadians, of whom Statistics Canada says there’s around 300,000 of them.
