It took less than 24 hours for the Blackhawks organization to take additional action. Hockey players love teammates no matter who they are!
The Blackhawks' lone black player, and one of about 30 in the NHL, Duclair said he was disappointed but not surprised at the racial taunts four fans aimed at Capitals player Devante Smith-Pelly on Saturday night at the United Center.
Smith-Pelly isn't alone in facing racism. Several fans were eventually removed from the arena.
The Blackhawks issued an apology to both Smith-Pelly and the Capitals. He was coming off the ice and heard a fan scream, "Go back to playing basketball".
Political experts rate Donald Trump worst president in USA history
They were asked to rate each president on a scale of zero to 100, and then the scores were averaged together for each president. He surprisingly scored highest for communicating with the public and lowest for embodying institutional norms.
BIG trade rumor coming out of St. Louis today.The rumored deal would send 3 roster players, one of which is Max Pacioretty, to St. Louis in return for Jaden Schwartz and a draft pick.
"It's pretty obvious what that means".
In the words of Martin Luther King Jr., "I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality..." So it's really lonely in that sense. "You don't really have anyone".
"We've had this conversation before", said Smith-Pelly, who is from Toronto. He wasn't called the N-word.
It was just a couple of fans razzing an opponent, no worse.

During the 2014 playoffs, the Bruins denounced fans who posted racial comments on social media targeting then-Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban, who is black, after he scored in double overtime. And that's a damn shame.
"Once you buy that there's a connection between race and ability, it's a slippery slope to the bad stuff: black people are lazy, Jewish people are cheap", Devarajan continued. "It just shows ignorance", said Capitals coach Barry Trotz. Yet, there are still people walking around Chicago with this prejudiced attitude. I think it's disgusting. Empathy and understanding are powerful things. Obviously, in this day and age, you don't expect it to.
Smith-Pelly, 25, is in his first season with the Capitals.
It has always amazed me by how stupid some fans will get because they believe there's nothing the athletes will do. I think you'll survive a few uncomfortable moments of thought. The off-ice official confirmed what happened and the fans were booted. Instead of just pretending that it's nothing more than few bad apples, let's all take a moment to see what we can learn from this.
