Chicago Blackhawks fans ejected after throwing racist taunts at Devante Smith-Pelly

Corey Crawford hasn't played since Dec. 23

Smith-Pelly, who is black, was sitting in the penalty box during the game between the Washington Capitals and Chicago Blackhawks at United Center.

Capitals forward Devante Smith-Pelly went to the box after a fight 8:36 into the third period.

"You look in the [locker] room, it's only me", Smith-Pelly told Khurshudyan at the time. "There's absolutely no place in the game of hockey or our country for racism", Washington coach Barry Trotz said. All we can do is educate, condemn racism and hope things like tolerance and acceptance aren't just utopian concepts.

Corbyn's Communist spy links? Labour leader named in Cold War files
In response, Labour told the minister to "focus on his job" and accused him of giving credence to "false and ridiculous smears". Files suggest he gave over intelligence over the arrest of an East German - but this is strongly denied.

Their actions have already been condemned by the Blackhawks and Bettman has now expressed his dismay at the incident.

Saturday's incident came after the refs punished Smith-Perry with a five-minute penalty for fighting Blackhawks defenseman Connor Murphy.

A group of Blackhawks fans were kicked out of Saturday game in Chiacgo against the Capitals for directing racist remarks at an African-American player. It's just a few ignorant people being idiots, that's it. You'd think that there'd be some sort of change or progression, but we're still working towards it I guess. The organization apologized, and reaffirmed their stance that they are working towards an "inclusive environment for everyone" and that "these actions will never be tolerated".

David Hogg, a survivor of the shooting , said he was going to do everything in his power to hold lawmakers accountable. Young people affected by the Douglas school shooting are calling for greater action to be taken.

Smith-Pelly told the Toronto Star in 2017 about an incident when he was playing in his first rookie tournament in Penticton, British Columbia. He is one 30 black players in the league. He has seven goals and 16 points in 54 games this season.

He will have the opportunity to address what happened after the Capitals arrived in Buffalo on Sunday, a day before they play the Sabres.

CBSSports.com noted the incident comes during the NHL's "Hockey Is For Everyone" month, which aims to drive social change and promote diversity and inclusiveness in the game of hockey.
