Jason Bailey, a Jewish hockey player drafted by the Anaheim Ducks in 2005, is reportedly suing the team and accusing coaches within the organization of anti-Semitism.
According to TMZ, the 23-year-old claims that when he was assigned to the team's ECHL affiliate the Bakersfield Condors, the coaches "unleashed a 'barrage of anti-Semitic, offensive and degrading verbal attacks.'"
More from TMZ:
In the suit, filed today in Orange County Superior Court, Bailey claims the head coach of the Condors told him "[Jews] only care about money and who's who" and that he "never wanted his son to be raised Jewish or to wear a Yarmulke."
Bailey claims the assistant head coach would get in on the Jew-bashing too -- saying things like, "Oh, I just got a friend request from a dirty Jew."
Bailey also claimed that the Condors coaches made him travel separately and "rarely" gave him any time on the ice because he was Jewish.
According to the lawsuit, Baily complained to the Ducks about the work enivornment, causing the team to make the coaches write apology letters to him "in which they both admitted to using hurtful language."
Bailey was traded to the Ottawa Senators in 2009.
