Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith apparently didn't like the line of questioning by a female reporter after a 3-1 loss to Vancouver on Monday, responding with comments that some are now describing as sexist.
When Karen Thomson of Team 1040 radio in Vancouver asked about the Canucks' third goal of the game, during which it appeared Keith might have gone unpenalized for a slash, the player acted like he didn't know what she was talking about twice.
He finally asked her, "What did you see?"
She responded: “It looked like maybe there was a penalty that went undetected. You seemed a bit frustrated.”
He replied: “Oh, no. I don’t think there was anything. I think he scored a nice goal. The ref was right there. That’s what the ref saw. We should get you as a ref maybe, eh?”
Thomson tried to laugh it off, informing Keith that she can't skate. But he got in another jab or two before essentially dismissing her: “The first female referee. You can’t play probably either, right? But you're thinking the game like you know it? OK, see ya.”
