The NHL is looking into an apparent homophobic slur that Scotiabank Arena audio picked up from a player during the broadcast of Monday’s Maple Leafs-Lightning game.
The player in question was Morgan Rielly.
It all went down during Monday’s Leafs vs. Tampa Bay Lightning game — when Rielly got into a heated exchange with a ref … and people watching on TV claim they heard the homophobic slur. There’s a debate over whether Rielly used the homophobic f-word or if he said, “F*cking rag it” … a hockey term that essentially means to freeze the puck and waste time.
Check out the video below:
Leafs GM Kyle Dubas also addressed the alleged slur, saying:
These guys aren’t too worried about what they say on the ice.
They’re playing hockey, not tiddlywinks.
