One parent of a Richmond Steel player, who did not want to be identified, said the incident started after the Steel player who was injured started to celebrate the opening goal.
?He was celebrating and he skated by the (opposing) bench and obviously, the coach said something to him because the player then turned around and gave him the finger,? the parent said.
?Every time that kid was on the ice, you could see the coach would be talking to him, trash talking him, basically,? added the parent.
?It was to the point where the kid was visibly upset on the bench.?
