Teddy Blueger isn't originally from Las Vegas. In fact, he's not even from the United States. The center was born in Riga, Latvia, before moving to Minnesota during his youth.

Blueger eventually made his way to Las Vegas in a trade from Pittsburgh. He was sent to the Vegas Golden Knights for prospect Peter DeLiberatore and the 2024 third-round draft pick.

The center has represented his home country of Latvia on numerous levels. From playing for Latvia at the 2011 IIHF World Juniors U18 Championship to being named to play at the IIHF World Championship, he's played against the world's best.
