Discrimination in the NHL
Quebec Hockey Players SidelinedeBook - 2010
Ever since Maurice Richard dazzled hockey fans in the 1940s and 1950s, fighting his way to hockey's summits, the issue of discrimination against Quebec hockey players has simmered on. Now an NHL veteran confirms that unless Quebec hockey players are superstars, they are less likely to be drafted than other players in Canada. Using statistics covering nearly 40 years, the discussion shatters tenacious myths such as those claiming that Quebecois players are physically smaller, play poor defensive hockey, and only serve as the best goalies. Looking for solutions, this account proposes a new NHL team for Quebec City and a Quebec national junior team for international events.
