BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says the league condemns the behavior of four male fans chanting a racial taunt against a black player, and backs the Chicago Blackhawks for ejecting the offenders.

Bettman says no one "should ever have to endure such abuse at one of our games."

The NHL released Bettman's statement Sunday morning, a day after Washington Capitals forward Devante Smith-Pelly was taunted by fans while he served a major penalty for fighting.
