It's over for Bill Peters in Calgary after a former player revealed disturbing details.
2007 Chicago Blackhawks second round pick Akim Aliu says Peters directed racial slurs at him in the locker room.
"Not very surprising the things we’re hearing about Babcock. Apple doesn’t fall far from the Tree, same sort of deal with his protege in YYC. Dropped the N bomb several times towards me in the dressing room in my rookie year because he didn’t like my choice of music.
First one to admit I rebelled against him. Wouldn’t you? And instead of remedying the situation, he wrote a letter to John McDonough and Stan Bowman to have me sent down to the ECHL. 20 year old on pace for 20 goals in his first pro year with zero PP/PK time was off to a great start in his pro career."
Jeff Marek of Sportsnet reports that Peters has officially been fired.
