Canada Post commemorates Colored Hokey League

At the end of January 2020, Canada Post released a stamp to commemorate the Colored Hockey League which was established 22 years before the NHL. “The stamp features images of players from the Colored Hockey League that operated from 1895 to the 1930s and lists the catchy names of some of the teams — Jubilees, Stanleys, Eurekas, Sea-Sides, Rangers, Royals and Moss Backs… many of whom were the sons and grandsons of escaped U.S. slaves who sought freedom in Canada.”
