The Edmonton Oilers’ season is over after they got swept out of the playoffs earlier this week.
Ethan Bear’s girlfriend, Lenasia Ned, took to social media and shared that he had been receiving racist messages on his social media accounts regarding his indigenous background.
The 23-year-old made a huge mistake in the third overtime of the team’s Game 4 loss when he decided to go for a long change, and that’s when the Oilers turned over the puck.
The long pass went to Kyle Connor, who then scored the series-ending goal on a breakaway.
Being swept was one thing, but Wayne Gretzky also stepped down from his role with the Edmonton Oilers one day after their elimination. Gretzky will join TNT as a hockey analyst next season.
