National Hockey League condemns racial abuse of Capitals player


While sitting in the box surrounded by Chicago fans, the black Canadian found himself being taunted by four audience members chanting "basketball" at him.

Smith-Pelly, who is one of about 30 black players in the National Hockey League, addressed the comments after Sunday's morning skate and said that while it was "a few idiots being ignorant", they still deserved to be called out.

Four Blackhawks fans were kicked out of Saturday's game against the Capitals at United Center after racially-charged taunts were made toward Smith-Pelly. Or I got the idea.

Hearing quite a few teams have really been working the phones on Brassard.including NJ, Carolina, Winnipeg.The Sens are asking for a assistant GM told me: "a first, a second, a roster player and a goalie prospect".

"We've had this conversation before", said Smith-Pelly, who is from Toronto.

This incident just goes to show that people with hate in their hearts don't care about your economic or social status; there are no limits to their racism or how low they will stoop with it. "These actions will never be tolerated", the Blackhawks said. This rumor surprised me as although Schwartz has faced a ton of injury issues he is also a insane talented player who would fit in very well in Montreal.

Smith-Pelly said he stepped forward publicly to call out the fans for what they said because he didn't want to "brush it under the rug".
