The NHL released statements on Thursday against the racial slurs aimed at Joel Ward, who scored the winning goal against the Boston Bruins.
Ward is moving on and putting the comments behind him, whose victory of scoring the game-winning goal was quickly overtaken by the racist comments on Twitter. He understands he is a minority, and will take this chance to be a leader and an example for the rest of the minorities.
Though not necessarily a good thing, racism isn’t new to the sport of hockey, dating back as far as 2005 with the aboriginal coach Ted Nolan of the Moncton Wildcats.
The Bruins and the rest of their fans are disappointed with these comments, and hope that it won’t reflect poorly on the majority who don’t agree with the slurs.
