Callahan a Top NHL Irish Surname

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, John Grigg at The Hockey News looks at the top 10 NHLers with Irish surnames...

6. Ryan Callahan, C, Rangers
The Blueshirts haven’t exactly had the best of seasons, but Ó Ceallagcháin has been playing well: enough to make Team USA for the Vancouver Games. Ceallagcháin means ‘strife’ or ‘contention,’ so Ó Ceallagcháin means a descendant of strife or contention, not a bad name for a Rangers player this year.

...Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone. Try not to drink too much green beer today.
