The Leafs And NHL Are Investigating A Possible Homophobic Slur Used In Last Night’s Game

The NHL is investigating a possible homophobic slur uttered during the Leafs’ loss last night at Scotiabank Arena. TV cameras picked up what sounded like a slur, possibly directed at a referee, with 1:51 left to play in the second period as Tampa Bay’s Yanni Gourde and the Leafs’ Morgan Rielly skated into the Toronto defensive zone on a dump-in. GM Kyle Dubas says his team will do everything it can to aid the investigation. The Leafs lost 6-2. Next up, they host Chicago tomorrow night.
