While the NHL is celebrating its 100th season this year, it was not the first organized hockey league – that honor goes to the Colored Hockey League of the Maritimes. Organized in 1895 in Nova Scotia, this league is finally given its proper recognition in this outstanding work by George and Daril Fosty.

With help from the leadership of the Baptist Church, a transplant from Trinidad named Henry Sylvester Williams was the mastermind of the league as the first games were played in 1895 and with the popularity of ice hockey in Canada, the league became popular for both players and spectators. Not only was the sport itself a means for blacks to earn a little but it also was a business opportunity for blacks in a time and place when those opportunities were few and far between.

The quality of play was very good and through extensive research, the Fosty brothers reveal that two important staples of the game were invented in the Colored Hockey League, but because of either oversight or a lack of proper credit, it has not been well known. The act of a goalie dropping to the ice to cover the puck was started by goaltender Henry “Little Braces” Franklyn in 1898. There were also players who through their sheer power began shooting the puck with extra force, the forefather of today’s slap shot.

Reading about this, the teams and what they went through in order to play the game (which included games against teams of white players as well as other colored teams in the league) and the struggle of black Canadians for civil rights made for a riveting read that was read in one sitting by this reviewer.

Whether a reader is a hockey historian, interested in civil rights history, or just wants to read a compelling book about a chapter in sports history that seems to have been ignored until now, this well-written and richly detailed book will satisfy that desire.

Bought the book for my son who is the only black player on his hockey team to show him how far the sport has come for African Americans and he loves it, excellent read and very insightful!

Been waiting to read this for a long time.

Great book with some interesting history of the contribution black Canadians made to the creation of Canada and the protection of that great nation!!!

As a Chicagoan, and Blackhawks fan, this history puts a lot of meat on the hockey bone and
the black Canadian history bone. Can anyone suggest other black Canadian reads?

Very historical. Story that needs to be told!

The Frosty's research is outstanding. I was left wanting more. I wanted a happier ending, but the truth hurts. Their honesty is refreshing. Some many great athletes rediscovered. A must read.

As a fan of the history of North America , I found this to be a very entertaining read. Not as much hockey as I would have liked but a good read .
