Hockeys' Roots

As incredible as it may seem to some fans, the CHL... The Colored Hockey League being considered by a growing number of hockey researchers to have been the secret source of hockeys' modern style of play.
The roots of modern Canadian hockey originate, in large part, from the influence of an even more surprising source, that of early African-Canadian hockey. For it was Black hockey players in the later half of the nineteenth century whose style of play and innovations helped shape the sport, effectively changing the game of hockey forever.
