"I have taken some time to reflect on what transpired on the ice against Bakersfield on Monday night," Imama said. "What happened is unfortunate for everyone. No matter how intense or heated a game gets, there is no room for this in our game and no excuse. I am very proud to be an African-Canadian hockey player and to stand for all other players that are in the same situation as me.
"I would like to thank the Los Angeles Kings and Ontario Reign, Edmonton Oilers, and Bakersfield Condors for their professionalism in helping me handle this situation," he continued. "Last but not least, I cannot thank my family and friends for their continued love and support."
Imama closed by saying he won't be commenting further on the matter.
The 23-year-old is in his third season in the Kings system. The Tampa Bay Lightning selected him in the sixth round of the 2015 NHL Draft.
