Karmanos, in an interview this week with the Seattle Times, said he was not informed by Francis about the two incidents, saying he would have fired Peters had he been told.

The Flames were on a road trip when the controversy broke. Peters was not with the team Wednesday night in Buffalo as the Flames continued an investigation into the allegations.

The NHL is also investigating.

Aliu said Thursday that he has accepted an invitation from the National Hockey League to discuss the situation and will not make any further comments until after the meeting.

"I took this matter very seriously", Francis said in the statement. "I took immediate action to address the matter and briefed ownership", said Francis, who is now the GM of the as-yet unnamed expansion team in Seattle.

However, these users are now required to submit to a mandatory facial scan to secure a new phone number or Internet connection. The new rule is introduced by China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and was announced back in September .

Further stories of abuse at the hands of Peters, this time of the physical variety, spawned from Aliu's allegations, as former Hurricanes defenceman Michal Jordan took to Twitter and claimed that he and one of his teammates were physically assaulted on the bench during a game by their former coach.

Both Peters and Francis left the Hurricanes organization within a matter of days in April 2018 as Dundon asserted control over the team.

Even if Francis is somewhat telling the truth here, it raises even more questions, mainly: Why did someone in the position of Francis - with the power and authority to hire and fire as he sees fit - offer Peters a contract extension the summer after he admitted to knowing about all of this?

"It would have been inappropriate of me to comment publicly while an active investigation was being conducted by another team", Francis said in Saturday's statement.

"To me, it's what happened after that I'm proud about actually, the way the players handled it, and the way the support staff handled it, which was to bring it to management right away", Brind'Amour said. Jordan, who now plays in the KHL, last played for the Hurricanes in the 2015-16 season.

Karmanos sold majority interest in the Hurricanes to Tom Dundon in January 2018 but remains a minority owner. Alexander, who has won numerous writing awards at the state and national level, covered the Hurricanes' move to North Carolina in 1997 and was a part of The N&O's coverage of the Canes' 2006 Stanley Cup run.
