For over 60 years George "Kirk" Scott had been part of hockey in one form or another. From rink rat to top scorer in Junior B hockey to joining the Plymouth Whalers coaching staff to being inducted into the International Afro-American Sports Hall of Fame in Detroit. Kirk's teachings helped shape players like Tyler Seguin, Chad LaRose, Austin Levi and Justin Williams. His influence can still be seen out on the ice to this day yet in the history books you would have a hard time finding his name along side other coaching staff and players. With his hockey career behind him Kirk now wants to bring awareness of the history black players had in a white domination game and help its future by bringing black and other minorities into the sport, to maybe one day see the first black head coach in the NHL.

Look for Kirk's new book titled "Half in Half Out" a black history of hockey coming later this year.
