The Location of Pay Discrimination in the National Hockey League
Past studies have only uncovered a limited amount of evidence regarding salary discrimination in the National Hockey League (NHL). Only French Canadian defensemen sometimes seemed to be underpaid. It has been argued recently that the lack of evidence may be more a reflection of excessive aggregation than an absence of pay discrimination. In the present article, both national origin and the location of a player's team are taken into account in salary regressions. The main outcome of the study is that salary discrimination based on team location appears to be a weak but pervasive phenomenon, more surely so in English Canada. An incidental outcome is that players located in English Canada cities were underpaid during the 1993-1994 season.
