Fredericton native Willie O’Ree has been chosen for induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame! Willie was the first black player in the NHL…he broke the colour barrier when he played for Boston in 1958. Reached at his home in San Diego the humble O’Ree simply said that he’s “tried to be a good ambassador for the sport” and that he’s “being rewarded for doing his small part”.
The Multicultural Association of Greater Moncton continues to do wonderful work in welcoming newcomers to #NewBrunswick, even at great cost to themselves! Thank you to all their staff for making Moncton a great place to be!https://t.co/wDhGhN4jVy
