The Vancouver Canucks are in Toronto this weekend to play the Maple Leafs.

While they’re in the neighborhood, forward Alex Burrows will have a little chat with league officials about what happened between him and New Jersey forward Jordin Tootoo, according to Sportsnet’s John Shannon.

On Sunday, Tootoo accused Burrows of making disparaging remarks about Tootoo’s “personal life and family” during the Canucks-Devils game on Newark.

Burrows denied that he “crossed the line,” and was adamant that nothing was said about Tootoo’s Inuit heritage or history of substance abuse.

No word if Burrows could face supplemental discipline in the form of a fine or suspension.

If he is fined, it wouldn’t be the first time.
