Video: Andrew Shaw uses an obscene gesture and slur in Game 4

UPDATE: The NHL has suspended Andrew Shaw for one game and fined him $5,000.


I don’t think Andrew Shaw will ever be confused for an upstanding citizen of the game and his actions in Game 4 confirmed that notion. It wasn’t just one moment in the game, rather a series of terrible, terrible moments.

Here is the video of his transgressions:

At the 1:02 mark Shaw visibly says a homophobic slur.

At the 1:35 mark you can clearly see him flipping off the referees.

Both of these aren’t just terrible things on the ice – these are terrible moments in general as a human being.
