The NHL has cleared former Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon of any wrongdoing in an investigation that he used racially-charged language while the team was in the Toronto bubble.
On Thursday, the NHL said the “allegations were neither corroborated nor substantiated, and are inconsistent with Tallon’s past actions and his affirmative efforts in support of diversity and inclusion initiatives.”
The league added there was “no established violation of NHL policy or protocols.”
Tallon was under investigation by the league following an allegation he used some sort of racially-charged language before Florida’s Game 1 against the Islanders in Toronto.
Florida Hockey Now was first to report the investigation into Tallon.
