    Carnegie could have been first black NHL player, letter shows

    Larry Berman was so excited about winning an important piece of hockey history at auction recently that he couldn't keep it.

    For $240, Berman obtained the August 1948 letter the New York Rangers sent Herb Carnegie inviting him to try out for the team, an overture that could have put him on track to become the NHL's first black player a decade before Willie O'Ree broke in with the Boston Bruins.

    Him and his brother too...... Willie O'ree may have been the first black NHL player but he wasn't the first black professional hockey player.... And by all accounts the Carneige brothers were pretty damn good too - star players of their day..... Not to take anything away from O'ree but he wasn't a star player by any means at the NHL level..
