    Apparently one of the St. FX players is a sexual assault survivor and an Acadia player had been making repeated insults about it to him, and that's what caused everything. Not sure if this goes for all of CIS but there is zero tolerance for fighting in AUS.

    NHL Network is showing Champions League and all the officials are live mic and have cameras.

    This is awesome.

    Not a highlight by any means (quite disgusting, to be honest).

    Jonathan Diaby, 24, plays for the Jonquiere Marquis in the North American Hockey League. On Saturday the team was playing the St. Jerome Petroliers du Nord when people in the stands began harassing both Diaby and his family.

    When Diaby, who is black, was sent to the penalty box in the first period the so-called 'fans' began shouting racist insults.

    One racist kept up a stream of invectives for several minutes as he leaned over the sides of the penalty box to harass Diaby, and waved his arms like a gorilla and showed Diaby images of a baboon on his phone.

    Others in the stands said Diaby should be eating bananas.

    Players on the ice noticed the harassment and told the racists to stop, but the men continued with their taunts.

    They also harassed Diaby's family, with several people crowding around them, pushing and hitting his father and pouring beer on his girlfriend.

    At one point dozens of people surrounded Diaby's father and girlfriend as he told the bigots to be respectful.

    In the second period Diaby was hit in the face with a stick and the referee sent him to the penalty box again -- but instead, Diaby waited out the time in the dressing room in hopes of minimizing the torment.

    During the game the Marquis's captain asked the referee to intervene, and to make sure Diaby would be escorted by security guards out of the arena. That did not happen.

    Diaby left the game during the second period and went to join his family in the stands, and they left the arena before the game ended.

    Diaby said that despite reports, he and his loved ones did not get escorted out by police. Instead they were left to defend themselves as they went away.
