Disgraced Former NHL Coach Vows He's Changed After Landing New Job
BY TJ TUCKER AUGUST 30, 2023 (12:42)
Peters has been named the new bench boss of the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the Western Hockey League, with the team saying he's signed a multi-year deal. In a news release, both the WHL and Peters say he's changed.
Peters resignation from the Flames was the result of Akim Aliu stating Peters had used anti-black racists remarks against him when both were with the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL in 2009-10. Aliu still says Peters has never apologized.
Aliu has since said that another coach tried to broker an apology on behalf of Peters, but he's not buying it.
