Some Toronto Maple Leafs fans are furious after disturbing information on new head coach Craig Berube was released on social media.

Controversy follows Berube's hiring

The Leafs management stopped their search for a new coach and decided to hire Craig Berube. They confirmed their decision last week, and only a few days later, Berube is already under scrutiny.
Back when he was still playing in the NHL, Berube was a tough guy who liked to disturb his opponents by any means possible. Unfortunately, he took things too far in a game in 1997.

Berube's past misconduct resurfaces

Berube was suspended for one game for using a racial slur against an opponent. Here's what the Los Angeles Times wrote when the incident occurred:
"Craig Berube of the Washington Capitals was suspended for one game without pay on Tuesday for calling Florida's Peter Worrell, who is black, a «monkey» during an on-ice scuffle on Sunday."


Apology and future expectations

While such behavior is unacceptable today, Berube apologized and served his suspension. In no way does it affect his capabilities to coach the Toronto Maple Leafs and lead them to a Stanley Cup.
However, if it happens again, major consequences will undoubtedly follow, just like what we're seeing with the Edmonton Oilers' assistant coach and NHL legend Paul Coffey, who is currently under investigation for a racist gesture he made during a recent game:
"The Oilers were leading & Paul Coffey turned to make racist hand gestures toward a fan's turban, mocking his head. The Canucks game back and won in regulation. Karma is real. Hope Paul is held responsible for his actions."
