Via email, deputy commissioner Bill Daly confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com that the NHL is “looking into” what happened tonight in the first period of the Rangers’ 5-3 loss to the Flyers.
“We have [the] ability to discipline for language used on the ice,” Daly told ESPNNewYork.com via email, although he noted that the league has never employed that authority in the case of an anti-gay slur.
Daly refrained from immediate judgment because he had not yet seen the video slip of Simmonds calling Rangers winger Sean Avery a homophobic slur.
