The incident, which occurred in front of players and team staff in the visitors dressing room at HEB Center, led to a 1-0 forfeit of the game by the Toronto Maple Leafs' farm team.
"I was informed by the leadership group that the entire team was in a state of shock and not comfortable proceeding with tonight's game. We fully support our players and staff in this matter."
