Here's my list:
Grant Fuhr is the Coyotes' goaltending coach.
Tony McKegney was a C/LW, though he mostly played LW in the NHL. Anson Carter came up as a center, but was moved to the wing by I believe Washington.
As for defensemen, J.L. Grand Pierre, Sean Brown, Trevor Daley, Bryce Salvador, Jason Doig.
And, off the top of my head, Jean-Luc Grand Pierre plays defence.
Roman Ndur and Jason Doig also played defence.
Manny Malhotra too, I think.
Chooch, I am not sure of your point.
But if your point is what I think it is, you deserve to get banned for it.
Sean Brown is black?
Surprisingly enough, yes. I think he's only half, but apparently its enough to qualify.
Dirk Graham is I think half black, or at least "of African descent". He was a center, and was also the head coach of the Chicago Blackhawks.
If I had a dollar for every time I thought that after reading a chooch post.
He's not black... he's half Indian (as in India)...
Youre right. Very few Indians in the NHL (Bawa?) or CFL.
My point is why is it so low historicly?
Brashear, Donald (LW) Pha Robert Earl, LW Tor
Pokey Reddick G Fred Brathwaite (G)
Jarome Iginla, RW Dirk Graham RW - were both captains of there teams.
was Ray Neufeld black?
odds are not many black kids play hockey maybe it is because they are drawn more to basketball baseball and football as per cultural influences.
... in the States. I would think black Canadians are substantially no less interested in hockey than any other ethnicity.
And when you start doing the math it makes sense that there are only a handful of black NHL players historically. If you believe this source: www.infoplease.com/spot/bhmhockey1.html, blacks made up only 0.02% of Canadians in 1971. Roughly 22,000,000 Canadians means roughly 4400 blacks. Let's say there were roughly 300 NHL players at the time, 95% of them Canadian, so that leaves 285 Canadians, or roughly 1 NHL player out of 77,200 Canadians.
Fast forward to today: 33,000,000 Canadians, 2% (~660,000) of them black. Roughly 400 Canadian NHLers, good for 1 in 82,500 Canadians. Proportionally, that's 8 blacks in the NHL.
He's also part Native American, according to nativehockey.com
isn't Boston's Nathan Robinson a center? And prospects Yared Hagos and Anthony Stewart? As for blueliners, Dustin Byfuglien and Shawn Belle (prospect), John Oduya (prospect) Sean McMorrow (prospect) and Francis Bouillon who's obviously of mixed blood.
You'd have about 668 dollars?
how many natives are there in the nhl
and how many newfies?
