9781926824017: Discrimination in the NHL: Quebec Hockey Players Sidelined

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.

About the Author:

Bob Sirois played hockey for the Philadelphia Flyers and the Washington Capitals, earning 212 points in 286 NHL games and representing the Washington Capitals in the 1978 All Star Game. Forced to retire early by a severe back injury, he has remained active in hockey as an agent and president of Montreal’s Roadrunners. He lives in Montreal.

Review:

"I agree with Bob Sirois' conclusions. The many statistics are interesting and troubling. With firsthand experience, I can say that it reflects reality exactly."  —Michel Bergeron, former NHL coach, New York Rangers and Quebec Nordiques

"This seems to be strong material and worth serious study by the NHL."  —New York Times



"An enlightening book."  —Le Devoir

"Explosive conclusions!"  —The National Post



"I agree 100% with Bob Sirois."  —Bobby Holik, 2-time Stanley Cup winner with the New Jersey Devils
