Jewish hockey player Jason Bailey has filed law suit against the Anaheim Ducks hockey team on Tuesday, alleging he was a victim of religious discrimination, harassment based on religion, intentional infliction of emotional distress and retaliation, CNN reported.

According to the report, two Ducks coaches made comments like, "I don't know if we can trust him with the money; he's Jewish," and denied him playing time and resources "that were fully available to the hockey players who were not Jewish."

Bailey was traded and now plays for the Binghamton Senators farm team.
