Florida Panthers forward Krys Barch WENT TOO FAR, Saturday night, as he directed a racial slur towards a Montreal Canadiens player.
It's being reported by the Miami Herald that Barch was given a misconduct after the dustup at the end of the first period in Florida's 3-2 win against Montreal. The newspaper is citing an unknown official who claims that linesman Darren Gibbs overheard Barch used a RACIAL SLUR against P.K. Subban.
P.K Subban parents are Jamaican.
After the game, Subban talked about the "possibly" racial slur:
Personally, I didn't hear anything. I don't even know what happened, really. A couple of guys on the ice told me that something was said. I don't know what was said. I didn't hear it. As far as I'm concerned it's really out of my hands, so I don't really know too much about it.
Florida Panthers Head Coach Kevin Dineen also spoke about the incident:
Well, my take is we have an incredibly broken-up player in there who feels extremely bad that there was an insinuation that something inappropriate was said and now it's moved on to a league matter, and obviously the Florida Panthers, Krys Barch and all of us are really shaken up by this, that there was an insinuation that something was said that was inappropriate.
Barch was cleared from the locker room before the media press was allowed to enter after the game. Also, it's being said that the NHL will be looking into the matter.
