1900 – Nova Scotia had the First “‘Black’ Hockey League in World” – “Coloured” Hockey League of the Maritimes operated for two decades, 1900-1920.

1900 – The first time “Goal Keepers were allowed down on the ice to stop the puck” were the African-Nova Scotians of our “Coloured” Hockey League of the Maritimes. This practice was not allowed in NHL until 1917.
