The NHL announced early this morning that they would investigate the possibility that Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly used a homophobic slur during last night's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The league announced that they've interviewed several participants in the game and reviewed audio.
NHL came to the conclusion that no slur was used against an NHL defenseman and Rielly won't face any discipline.
