Author of a racist gesture, back to the game
A little less than two months after being suspended for the rest of the season due to a racist gesture, defenseman Jacob Panetta will be back in the colors of the Jacksonville Icemen.
In its day-to-day deal report on Friday, the ECHL said Panetta was “reinstated after successfully completing a learn-to-drive experience in conjunction with the National Hockey League’s Player Inclusion Committee. « .
Panetta was punished for committing a racist act against Jordan Subban of the South Carolina Stingrays.
He could request a reduction of the sanction as of March 17. His suspension was finally 22 games long.
