Assessing each NHL team at midpoint of 2021-22 season

Hockey player Krystof Hrabik gets 30-game suspension for directing racist gesture at another AHL player - ESPN

A source told ESPN that Hrabik, 22, imitated the movements of a monkey in a taunt that targeted Imama, who is Black. The taunt was spotted by players on the Roadrunners bench, and Hrabik was confronted on the ice by Tucson’s Travis Barron while Imama was held back by a linesman during a stoppage in play.

The AHL became aware of the incident on Jan. 13 and started an investigation, during which Hrabik was removed from all team activities.
