6. Georges Laraque

There are black people in the NHL! And not all of them play for Atlanta (well, Winnipeg). Born in Montrรฉal to Haitian parents, 6โ€™4โ€-, 250-pound Georges Laraque was a notorious enforcer during his years in the league. But he earned the respect of his peers as a clean fighter on the ice and a gentle giant off of it. Since retiring in 2010, he’s entered politics and business, becoming deputy leader of the Green Party and investing in a chain of vegan restaurants. His short-lived mixed martial arts career was less successful.
