South Carolina Stingrays defenceman Jordan Subban called attention to a racist gesture made to him during an East Coast Hockey League game on Saturday night against the Jacksonville Icemen.

Subban quote tweeted a game tweet from the Icemen saying that the overtime period between both teams featured “a rough fight resulting in multiple penalties on both sides,” clarifying that it started by a racist taunt from Icemen defenceman Jacob Panetta, who has since been suspended.

Subban tagged Panetta’s Twitter account in his tweet, which has since been deleted.

The ECHL announced Panetta's suspension was indefinite pending a hearing.

"The ECHL on Sunday announced that Jacksonville’s Jacob Panetta has been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, as a result of his actions in ECHL Game #474, South Carolina at Jacksonville, on Jan. 22. Panetta is suspended under Rule #28 – Supplementary Discipline as a result of his actions at 0:23 of overtime," read a statement from the league.

The Icemen released a statement on Sunday afternoon, which read: "The Jacksonville Icemen are cooperating with the league review of the incident that occurred in last night's game against South Carolina. As an organization, our fans, partners, and sponsor know our core values and we intend to make comments and decisions after completion of league review."

Jordan’s brother - New Jersey Devils defenceman P.K. - shared video on his Twitter account of the overtime fight and Panetta making the gesture as Jordan skated away with an official. 

It is the second time in less than a week that a racist gesture has been identified in the game.

The American Hockey League suspended San Jose Barracuda player Krystof Hrabik for 30 games after he made a racist gesture at Boko Imama of the Tucson Roadrunners.
