Apparent discrimination against Francophones from Quebec by National Hockey League (NHL) teams is a controversial topic in the academic literature examining professional ice hockey recruitment. While consensus has coalesced around the contention of Lavoie and Longley that significant discrimination is evident in the under-selection of Francophones for NHL rosters, we consider further the role of differing physical size between the regional populations from which players are drawn. Recent research on regional size differentials and consideration in this chapter of the size of players drafted since 1970 points toward a reconsideration of differences in physical size as an influence on ethnic inequalities.
