This article shared 1307 times since Mon Jun 28, 2021
The Chicago Tribune reported that several former Chicago Blackhawks players and staff members connected to the 2009-10 team have discussed if the team knew at the time about sexual-assault allegations by two former players against former video coach Bradley Aldrich.
Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin, the Hawks' director of player personnel in 2010, said, "It came out recently, there was a meeting that I heard that was done in Chicago. I was not part of any meeting, and I was not part of any decision based on that.And I was not aware of anything going on at the time," according to ESPN.com .
Others have said most team executives probably knew about Aldrich, who was convicted in 2013 of sexually assaulting a high school hockey player in Michigan and was required to register as a sex offender.
The Athletic quoted an anonymous player from the 2010 team who said, "Every guy on the team knew about it. Every single guy on the team knew."
