Abstract

The chapter reviews studies investigating salary discrimination in the National Hockey League. The vast majority of studies concentrate on potential discrimination of French-Canadian players compared to English-Canadian players with some also taking salary differences between US and European players into account. The findings presented in the available studies differ considerably and are, therefore, difficult to reconcile. There is limited evidence for salary discrimination of French-Canadian players playing for English-Canadian teams. While some studies do find support for salary discrimination, others fail to find statistically significant salary differences that can be attributed to a player’s ethnicity.
