John Vanbiesbrouck has stepped down from his dual role as coach and general manager of the Ontario Hockey League's Soo Greyhounds after admitting using the "N-word" in reference to one of his players Sunday night.

Vanbiesbrouck, a former standout goaltender with the New York Rangers, Florida Panthers and Philadelphia Flyers, used a derogatory racial slur to describe team captain Trevor Daley.

Vanbiesbrouck, a devout Christian, also told the network that he does not consider himself to be racist.

Vanbiesbrouck, also a part-owner of the Greyhounds, told MCTV he asked for Daley's forgiveness, but Daley said no. Daley left the team on Saturday afternoon and reportedly has no plans to return.

DAMN. I was a big-time mark for Beezer, I actually still have a t-shirt of him, and it ain't easy to find t-shirts of hockey players in America beyond the big stars. I went to the first game where he came back to MSG with the Panthers and cheered like crazy for him. I hate to think that he's a racist, but reading this story he's at best very, very insensitive. What a shame.

What I REALLY don't understand about all this, apart from the story as a whole... that the kid was ON BEEZER'S TEAM!!! Not a rival player, a kid from your own squad. Unreal...
