    Ice hockey's Boston Bruins will retire the jersey number of the league's first black player, more than 60 years after he created history


    Willie O'Ree will have his number 22 jersey hung from the rafters in a show of respect.

    O'Ree, now 85, became the league's first Black player when he suited up for Boston on January 18, 1958, against the Montreal Canadiens.
