Getting To The Bottom Of The Barch Story

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond at the Miami Herald,

The agent for Florida Panthers forward Krys Barch said his client has been talking to the NHL player’s association regarding his ejection from Saturday night’s game for an alleged racial slur but had yet to talk to the league.

Scott Norton, who has known Barch since he was a 15-year-old junior player in Canada, said that Barch is “upset and concerned for his family.” He added the comment directed toward Montreal’s P.K. Subban from the Panthers bench was misconstrued and “didn’t have any racial undertones nor was a slur. It may have been a misunderstanding or taken out of context” by linesman Darren Gibbs.

A league official told The Miami Herald on Saturday that Barch was ejected for using racially charged language.
