    About eight years ago (2003) a guy told me there’s three black players in the NHL. I don’t know what the number is today.

    According to Google, around 25 (2012). Can’t get on Wikipedia right now due to censor awareness. Thanks communist congress .

    I think Schulz is mentioning this because he thinks it’s unfair… Your thoughts?

    First you have to consider how may black people want to be in hockey. If my husband is typical, not many; he loathes the cold and has pointed out that, coming from Africa, African-Americans are really not adapted to handle cold well.Then you must compare the number of those trying out to the number of those drafted. If the percentage is much lower than for whites, there might be a racism factor going on. I suspect not.

    Thanks to Franklin, there are black players in the NHL now. Still not many, but more than there used to be, and many more to come. Look at young Seth Jones. His father was an NBA player. Soon, he will be in the NHL.

    Wow, that’s a lot of numbers. All of them more than I thought, since I don’t follow hockey. Congratulations to all in a tough but beautiful sport.
