SANTA ANA (AP) — A Jewish hockey player is suing the Anaheim Ducks alleging that his coaches made anti-Semitic remarks and discriminated against him because of his religion.

Attorneys for Jason Bailey, who has since been traded to the Ottawa Senators, filed the lawsuit in Orange County Superior Court on Tuesday.

The suit alleges that coaches for the Bakersfield Condors, then a minor league affiliate of the Ducks, repeatedly made anti-Semitic remarks and denied Bailey ice time because he was Jewish.

Bailey was assigned to play for the Condors under the contract he signed with the Ducks in 2008.

The lawsuit says Bailey complained but management downplayed the allegations of harassment.

Ducks spokesman Alex Gilchrist declined to comment on the suit.
