I sat on this an actually, really very long time. It broke my heart. I believe it made my career go downhill prior to it started."
Flames players were blindsided by the accusations against the second-year coach. Calgary defenceman Oliver Kylington, whose mom is Eritrean and father Swedish, said Peters has actually constantly treated him fairly, and yet respected Aliu for voicing his grievances.
"If he felt like those words have been seen, I truly respect that he's speaking out," Kylington stated. "Words like that must never ever, ever be stated."
Flames captain Mark Giordano called it "a really difficult situation" for the people included and franchise.
"I believe we all know there's no location for any of that sort of things in society, however likewise you need to appreciate that the claims are simply that right now, and you've got to go through the procedure," Giordano said, stating the team attempted to concentrate on having a great practice as they attempt to bounce out of a 1-5-2 slump.
Peters was worked with by Calgary after spending four seasons training the Carolina Hurricanes. The 54-year-old made the dive to Rockford after leading the Western Hockey League Spokane Chiefs to a Memorial Cup championship in 2008.

@Dreamer_Aliu78 Later Tuesday, former NHL defenceman Michal Jordan alleged Peters kicked him while the 2 were with the Carolina Hurricanes.
"Never wish anything bad to the individual but you get what you deserve Bill," Jordan stated on Twitter. "After years making it to the NHL had experience with the worst coach ever by far. Kicking me and punching other player to the head during the game then pretending like absolutely nothing occurred ... could not believe my eyes what can take place in the very best league.
"Happy that I don't have to go through that stuff on everyday basis any longer."
Later on, ABC11 and The Athletic reported Ron Francis, who was the Hurricanes basic supervisor at the time, was warned by players and other staffers about Peters' conduct, but selected not to fire him.
