Growing up in Oshawa, Ont., professional hockey player Saroya Tinker was often the only Black player on the ice.

“I was always a little bit of an outsider in hockey in regards to the comments I would receive and experiencing racism in the game,” said the 24-year-old defender for the Toronto Six of the Premier Hockey Federation.

Tinker began skating when she was around four years old and began playing hockey at age six.

At 17, Tinker was accepted to Yale University and played hockey for the Ivy League school for four years.

IIHF: Safety key to deciding on Russia’s return to worlds

The Associated Press 2 minute read Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023

HELSINKI, Finland (AP) — The International Ice Hockey Federation said Tuesday it will prioritize safety concerns when deciding whether to allow Russian and Belarusian teams to take part in its competitions, following efforts from the International Olympic Committee to allow athletes from both countries to compete at next year’s Paris Games.

The IIHF has ruled out Russia and its ally Belarus returning for this year's world championships but is set to decide by the end of May on whether to readmit them for the 2023-24 season. A decision on whether they can qualify for the 2026 Winter Olympics is expected next year.

The IOC’s proposal, strongly opposed by Ukraine and several other European governments, allows each sport’s international governing body some leeway to decide how and when to reintegrate Russia and Belarus.

Speaking on a visit to men's world championship co-host Finland, IIHF president Luc Tardif said the governing body would focus on the safety of players — including those from Russia and Belarus — and others at its events. That echoes language the IIHF used in its initial decision to exclude Russia and Belarus in Feb. 2022, shortly after the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

SASKATOON - The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations wants Harvard Crimson women's ice hockey coach Katey Stone to resign.

Stone reportedly made racist comments to players, including two Indigenous Canadians.

According to the Boston Globe, Stone accused players of lacking respect and that the squad was a group of skaters “with too many chiefs and not enough Indians” after putting a stop to a practice during the 2021-22 season.

"I am just disgusted at the statements that were made. It's totally disrespectful to our people and of course to our youth," FSIN vice chief Heather Bear told The Canadian Press on Tuesday.

Hockey, jobs, children, guitar, custom suit all in a day in the life of a PHF player

Donna Spencer, The Canadian Press 7 minute read Friday, Jan. 27, 2023

Canadians make up 44 per cent of Premier Hockey Federation players this season, with two of seven teams in the women's league based north of the border.

The PHF has upped the ante in its bid to be the professional women's hockey league of record in North America, starting with the doubling of this year's salary cap of US$750,000 per team to $1.5 million in 2023-24.

This season's average salary is $34,000 on a 22-player roster, although the range is from $13,500 up to the $80,000 contract paid to Buffalo Beauts forward Mikayla Grant-Mentis of Toronto.

The Toronto Six signed Daryl Watts last week and will pay her $150,000 in the second year of her contract in 2023-24.

TORONTO (AP) — Darryl Watts thought she’d retired from hockey after a stellar NCAA career.

At Boston College, Watts became the first freshman to win the Patty Kazmaier Award as the top player in women’s Division I hockey. She recently finished her career at Wisconsin, ranking second all-time in NCAA scoring with 297 points in 172 games.

Last fall, the 23-year-old from Toronto was accepted into the University of Wisconsin’s masters commercial real-estate program after a summer internship in the field. But a week before returning to her alma mater in Madison, Watts changed her mind about what she wanted to do with her life.

“I backed out seven days before. My dad was so upset,” Watts told The Canadian Press on Wednesday. “He supports everything I do, and he was so supportive after he kind of got over it.”

Scattered by war, Ukrainian preteens head to hockey tourney

MONTREAL (AP) — Sean Bérubé said he thought it was a joke when he was first asked to help assemble a team of Ukrainian preteen refugees, displaced by war and spread out across Europe, to play in a renowned Quebec City hockey tournament.

Bérubé, a businessman from the Quebec City region, was having a beer in Bucharest last March with Evgheniy Pysarenko, whom he played hockey with in Ukraine as a teenager.

The businessman — with the help of Pysarenko — had just traveled to Ukraine to help his former Ukrainian hockey coach and the coach’s family flee the Russian invasion. To show his gratitude, Bérubé said he owed Pysarenko a beer.

“Then he (Pysarenko) said, ’No, I’ve got a different thing to ask you. I have a different favor.'”
