NHL's Serious Mistake

The NHL made a bad post on Twitter again. The post appeared to celebrate the achievements of a German goalie, but it was completely wrong.
Here's what they posted:
"Thomas Greiss helped lead the way for Germany as a goalie.

He had the most wins among German-born goalies, with 162 wins in 368 games played, and he was the first to win the Jennings Trophy.

Congratulations on an amazing career!"

At first, it may not seem like there's a problem.
But there's a big issue.

NHL Receives Criticism

Thomas Greiss was actually banned from the German national team because of his anti-semitic beliefs.

"Germany has now clearly positioned itself on Thomas Greiss: When asked, sports director Christian Künast said, 'As long as the current sports management is responsible, Thomas Greiss will not be invited.'

Since the NHL made that post, many people expressed their frustration.
Clearly, someone on the communication team didn't do a thorough job.
Do you think the NHL should apologize?
