A Market Test for Ethnic Discrimination in the National Hockey League

Journal of Sports Economics, 2015, vol. 16, issue 5, 460-481

Abstract: This article tests for salary discrimination based on player ethnicities in the National Hockey League across various geographical locations with a market model that analyzes every game played during the 2010-2011 season. Using both the relative share of game-team players on the starting roster and time on ice as inputs, results suggest that, relative to English Canadian players, French Canadian and American players playing on Canadian teams suffer from wage discrimination. Potential confounding factors that can influence the inferences, as well as the limitations, of the market model approach are discussed.
