kinot-1 Posted April 20, 2016 Report Share Posted April 20, 2016 Blackhawks' Andrew Shaw could face discipline for possible homophobic slur. "In 2011, cameras appeared to capture Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds shouting the same homophobic slur at the New York Rangers’ Sean Avery during a game. Simmonds later denied using the slur, and the NHL had no proof for which to discipline. “Flyers player Wayne Simmonds has expressly denied using the homophobic slur he is alleged to have said,” NHL senior vice president of hockey operations Colin Campbell said in a statement. “Additionally, none of the on-ice officials close to the altercation in question heard any inappropriate slurs uttered by either of the primary antagonists. In light of this, we are unable at this time to take any disciplinary action with respect to last night's events.” Bold is mine. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
