The natural athlete went on to become the top amateur player in Canada in 2002, getting drafted fifth overall by the Montreal Canadiens three years later. Now one of the most recognizable figures in hockey, Carey credits his success to his community of Anahim Lake, where hard work and commitment often face off against remoteness and cost.
Throughout his incredible career, he’s taken every opportunity possible to encourage all young people, especially those who share his Indigenous background, to follow their dreams.
3. Willie O'Ree: The story of the first black player in the NHL (Lorimer Recordbooks)
Author: by Nicole Mortillaro
Willie O’Ree quietly made NHL history at the Montreal Forum on January 18, 1958, when he became the first black player to take to the ice. In the dressing room before the game, his Boston Bruins teammates told him not to worry.
If any one of the Montreal players said anything to him, they’d have his back. There was a round of applause when O’Ree stepped onto the ice, and newspapers ran the story. The colour barrier in the NHL had been broken, yet it would be sixteen years before the next black player, Mike Marson, was drafted.
Four decades later, the NHL pulled O’Ree out of retirement to honour his achievement and make him an ambassador for the NHL’s “Hockey is for Everyone” program to encourage kids from all backgrounds to play hockey. This book traces the early life of O’Ree in Fredericton, New Brunswick, his journey to the NHL, highlights from his hockey career, and his work encouraging diversity in the NHL.
