WHL vice-president Richard Doerksen is a busy man.

The league disciplinarian is wading through Saturday's fight-filled game between the Medicine Hat Tigers and Lethbridge Broncos to determine which suspensions will be handed out.

Doerksen is also investigating an ethnic slur that was alleged to have occurred during a Saturday tilt between the Kootenay Ice and Saskatoon Blades.

Ice defenceman James Martin and Blades forward Darian Dziurzynski received coincidental minor penalties for roughing. Martin also received a game misconduct for what one official described as a "racial slur."

"We're certainly looking at it and investigating it," Doerksen told the Saskatoon StarPhoenix.

Martin was not in the Kootenay lineup the following night when the Ice visited the Prince Albert Raiders.

"I asked them to sit him out while I investigated the comment," Doerksen told the StarPhoenix.

The league is expected to announce all supplementary discipline today.

ICE CHIPS

Only two players have a perfect record in the shootout (with three or more attempts). Prince Albert Raiders LW Dustin Cameron and Kootenay Ice C Max Reinhart are 3-for-3 ... Calgary Hitmen D Paul Postma's plus-62 leads the WHL.
