Oilers, GM Ken Holland decry racial abuse against Ethan Bear

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Edmonton Oilers general manager Ken Holland said racist comments directed to First Nation defenseman Ethan Bear are "totally unacceptable" and "disgusting."

Holland said he was told about the issue by team staff just before his season-ending address to the media Wednesday, two days after Bear made a costly turnover in the Oilers' season-ending loss to Winnipeg.

Bear's girlfriend, Lenasia Ned, posted on social media that the defenseman "received numerous racist messages and comments" in the aftermath of the Game 4 loss. Winnipeg tied it at 3 after a turnover by Bear and went on to win in triple overtime.
