Talk about a hockey family! In the early 80s, Czechoslovakian brothers Anton and Peter Stastny defected to Canada to join the Quebec Nordiques. They were followed the next year by another one of their brothers, Marian.
More than 25 years later, Peter's two sons, Paul and Yan, are playing in the NHL for Colorado and St.Louis, respectively. His two daughters, Katarina and Kristina, both played high level competitive tennis while attending University.
In that picture, taken in 1990, Peter's kids are visiting Slovakia for the first time, a few months after Peter returned to his home country for the first time since defecting. From left to right: Yan, Paul, Kristina, and Katarina.
