Chicago Blackhawks defenceman Duncan Keith took a few swipes at a female reporter after she questioned his unpenalized slash in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.
In a post-game interview, Team 1040 Radio's Karen Thomson said it looked like there was a penalty that went undetected following Canuck Daniel Sedin's 3-0 goal.
"Oh, no. I don’t think there was," Keith said. "I think he scored a nice goal, and that’s what the ref saw. Maybe we should get you as a ref maybe, hey?
"First female referee. You can't probably play either, right? But you're thinking the game, like you know it? See ya."
Twitter users -- some of whom agreed with Thomson's take on the play – called Keith’s comments a sexist attack, while others dismissed the outrage.
