Bill Peters will not coach the Calgary Flames on Wednesday, while club officers continue to investigate an allegation that he repeatedly used a racist lie to appeal to Akim Aliu while both were in the Rockford (Ill.) Minor league ten years ago.

The allegations of Aliu, born in Nigeria and raised in Canada and no longer in the NHL, were confirmed by two players who witnessed the event, according to the TSN of Canada.

"Our assessment of the allegations from (Monday) evening continues," said Flames general manager Brad Treliving Tuesday. “This is a very serious matter and we want to be thorough in our assessment. We will not comment further until our review is complete. "

Aliu told TSN that Peters walked into the dressing room for a morning skate and used a racial nickname several times to complain about the lyrics of hip-hop music that Aliu had chosen to play.

"He then walked away as if nothing ever happened," Aliu told TSN. “You could hear a pin fall into the room, everything became quiet. I just sat down in my booth, didn't say a word. "

Aliu said he feared that his career would suffer if he came forward at that time.

“I was 20 years old and a professional in the first year. I was too scared to say anything, & he said to TSN. "I beat myself into it every day."

He also said that Peter's bias against him led to his relegation to the ECHL.

Aliu's claim led other players to use social media to raise incidents in which they said they were hit or verbally abused by a coach, or saw other players beating or verbally abused.

Daniel Carcillo, a former NHL player who played 26 games for the kings during the 2013-14 season, said on Twitter when he saw coach Darryl Sutter "kick someone in the lower back on the couch."

Carcillo added: "What he did Matt Greene for the entire room before a team meeting when he had a concussion was absurd."

Carcillo also said that Sutter used curses to speak to a female flight attendant because "he wouldn't let us eat after a serious loss."

Carcillo also tweeted a picture of a junior team's rookie party, with faces obscured by players, and said that underage drinking and physical, verbal and sexual abuse took place during the event and were reported to the Western Hockey League and to Hockey Canada, who ignored it "because it concerned the name Sutter."

Brent Sutter, one of the six Sutter brothers who played in the NHL, owns the Red Deer Rebels of the WHL.

Darryl Sutter was known for being sullen in public and often tough against players behind closed doors as he approached the end of his royal period. Defenseman Drew Doughty, who spoke this year, said that he and Sutter often stood behind each other and that "at the end things went south and we got into a fight," but Doughty said he was fond of the coach that the kings went to two Stanley Cup championships.

Also on Tuesday, former defender Carolina Carolina hurricane Michal Jordan said that Peters kicked him and hit another player during a game while Peters coached the hurricanes. Jordan called Peters & # 39; by far the worst coach ever & # 39 ;. Peters coached Carolina from 2014 up to and including the 2017-18 season.

This week in Toronto, media reports that former Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock had instructed Mitch Marner to compile a list of his hardest working teammates and then share that list with Marner & # 39; s teammates. Although it was not offensive, it was possibly divided and a questionable coaching tactic.

Former NHL players Sheldon Kennedy and Theo Fleury have said they have been sexually abused by coach Graham James during their junior hockey career. James admitted that he was the victim of both players and spent time in prison.
