Florida Panthers forward Krys Barch was ejected after reportedly directing a racial slur at a Montreal player Saturday night, and Florida coach Kevin Dineen said it was now a matter for the NHL to investigate.

The Dallas Stars traded Barch to the Panthers back on Dec. 7

Barch was given a game misconduct after a dustup at the end of the first period in Florida's 3-2 win. The Miami Herald, citing an unidentified league official, said linesman Darren Gibbs overheard Barch use the slur against P.K. Subban, whose parents are Jamaican.

NHL executive vice president Colin Campbell is investigating the incident but no decision is expected Sunday, a source told ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun. The Panthers don't play again until Thursday.

Barch, 31, played his first 263 NHL games with Dallas, registering 26 points (10 goals, 16 assists) and 578 penalty minutes.

The Stars sent Barch and and a sixth-round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft to Florida for left wing Jake Hauswirth and the Panthers' fifth-round pick in 2012.

Dallas Stars forward Krys Barch is making some news during the Stanley Cup Final, taking to Twitter (@krysbarch) to express displeasure with Cancucks forward Maxim Lapierre, and taking issue with the taunting going on in the Vancouver-Boston series.

"I can't stand watching #40 and not even playing the game. I don't know if he has an ounce of man in him. I'd be embarrassed to be his father," Barch tweeted during Monday night's 8-1 Boston win.

Barch was on TSN Radio Tuesday to talk more about his comments on Lapierre and to give his thoughts on some of the taunting that has gone in the series.

"I would not allow my son to do the same," Barch told TSN Radio. "It's absolutely embarrassing. It's too bad right now that the rules in place protect this class of player, [one] that pretty much has no class."

A recap of that interview is here.
