Former Flame, Akim Aliu accuses head coach, Bill Peters of using racial slurs

Akim Aliu took to Twitter on Monday night as the former Calgary Flame spoke out tonight about how he was treated by his former coach, and current Flames coach, Bill Peters. He even managed to drag Mike Babcock's name into the mix and the whirlwind week in the NHL continues.

The Flames had little to comment and of course, were shocked by the news. The team will take some time to discuss internally and conduct an investigation to gather some more details from all the parties involved.

Aliu has played only 7 NHL games, scoring twice, in a career that has spanned over a decade. The gritty forward has been around, playing on over 22 teams as a pro. Bill Peters was his coach in his rookie pro season in Rockford of the AHL.

Look for more information from Calgary in the coming days.
