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.
Their is no way to prove in court that it is racially motivated. It's a piece of fruit could mean many things.
