NEW YORK -- Gary Bettman, Commissioner of the National Hockey League, today released the following statement regarding an incident at Thursday night's pre-season game between the Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers in London, Ontario.:
"We have millions of great fans who show tremendous respect for our players and for the game. The obviously stupid and ignorant action by one individual is in no way representative of our fans or the people of London, Ontario."
