I started really paying attention to hockey in the 2010-2011, which is the year that P.K. Subban broke into the league with the Montreal Canadiens. This is also the year after Evander Kane of the Winnipeg Jets — then the Atlanta Thrashers — made his NHL debut. My first year of hockey fandom really opened my eyes to how closed-minded people who were involved in hockey — be they fans or members of the media — really were. There has been very few people to speak out about racism that is faced by black players in the NHL.
