Asian & Pacific Islander heritage players on 2020-21 team rosters in pictures


I have an interesting story on NHL.com that kicks off Asian & Pacific Islander Heritage Month and shows the impact and growth of people of A&PI heritage in all aspects of hockey. If you have not seen the story, please give it a read HERE.

Nine players with family ties to China, India, Japan, the Philippines, Thailand and other Asian and South Asian countries have played in the NHL this season. There were several others who were on rosters of junior and professional minor league hockey teams in 2020-21. And more than 40 players of Asian and Pacific Islander heritage were on NCAA Division I and Division III men’s and women’s hockey rosters during the recently completed season.

Here are some of the players:
