Lets be serious. The fact a banana was thrown at a black player, it is self evident that it was racially motivated.

While having a racial opinion is not a crime, the league could press charges if an object is tossed on the playing surface by a fan.

So in reality, its up to the league/arena to press charges.

I could see how throwing an object on the ice...outside of the normal hats/squid...could make the league want to spin up a bogus player endangerment, harassment charges on the person just to get the message across this sort of conduct is unacceptable.
