From the CBC website.
A tweet from Edmonton Oiler Nail Yakupov is causing some controversy among the city’s Sikhs after the right winger [not bold in original] professed surprise at CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada broadcast in Punjabi.
Shortly before he hit the ice for practice Sunday morning, the player tweeted a message in Russian that translates roughly as “How can this be?” or “How can this happen?”
Attached to the tweet was a picture of the hosts from CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada in Punjabi, which broadcasts two games every Saturday with commentary in the Punjabi language.

Would CBC have reported this if the Yakupov was a left winger? Enquiring minds want to know!
