NHL Fines Blackhawks $2 Million

In the immediate wake of the announcement that Stan Bowman and Al MacIsaac were no longer with the organization, the Chicago Blackhawks were fined $2 million by the NHL for the club’s handling of the sexual assault in 2010.

From the NHL’s release:

The National Hockey League announced today that the Chicago Blackhawks have been fined $2 Million for the organization’s inadequate internal procedures and insufficient and untimely response in the handling of matters related to former video coach Brad Aldrich’s employment with the Club and ultimate departure in 2010. The League and the Blackhawks have decided that $1 Million of the fine money will be dedicated to fund local organizations in and around the Chicago community that provide counseling and training for, and support and assistance to, survivors of sexual and other forms of abuse.

    I read excerpts of the young player’s statement of what happened and it was really sick stuff. It seems Brent Sopel knew about it. But did he not tell any other players and then how did he know about it and no other players knew but him?

    Hawks will pay the price solid for a few years I think ..it’s probably the tip off the iceberg.
    We will have more news in the next Months but it’s far from over .
    They could of made a good exemple for the league at the time but they decide to hide everything now the volcano just blew up in their faces .
    And I would not be surprise to see Quenville loosing is job .
