Abstract

Lavoie, Grenier and Coulombe (1987) use data for a number of NHL seasons up to 1983-84 and conclude that Francophone Canadian players outperformed Anglophone Canadian players, which they interpret as evidence of hiring discrimination. This paper replicates their calculations for the 1989-90 season and finds performance differentials of the same sign, but smaller and no longer statistically significant at the 6 percent level. We also examine salary data for the 1990-91 season and find no evidence of salary discrimination, using similar empirical tools and the same standard of statistical significance.
