Last week saw the unedifying sight of two Scottish National League clubs taking part in a social media spat.
The whole episode does not paint the sport in Scotland in a good light.
The Scottish Ice Hockey (SIH) board has instructed both clubs to remove the statements no later than 6.00 pm today.
SIH wishes to remind all clubs that we have a social media policy, and any breaches of this shall be subject to investigation by the disciplinary committee.
Appropriate punishments will be apportioned to the offending clubs/individuals if they are found to be in breach of the policy.
