Black Hockey

In light of today being Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I have decided to share an article about the African Americans/Candians who are currently playing in the NHL.

The Caps have enforcer, Donald Brashear. “Brash” is known as one of the toughest fighters in the league.

The Caps used to have both Mike Grier

back in the early 2000’s.

There are other blacks in the NHL too, like rookie, Jerome Iginla.
