Brad Aldrich’s Name Removed From Stanley Cup

Brad Aldrich’s name has been removed from the Stanley Cup. Aldrich, a video coach for the Chicago Blackhawks during their 2009-10 Stanley Cup run, is the center of a sexual abuse case which involved a former Blackhawks player.

Last week Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz submitted a letter to Lanny MacDonald, chairman of the Hockey Hall of Fame, asking for Brad Aldrich’s name to be removed from the Stanley Cup.

The victim, former Blackhawks draft pick and then-prospect Kyle Beach, came forward as the player “John Doe” in the case, last Wednesday. According to the findings (which can be read in full HERE) by Jenner & Block, a law firm hired by the Blackhawks to conduct an independent investigation into the matter, Aldridge sexually abused Beach during the Blackhawks playoff run in 2010.

    A lot of people say the whole team should be crossed off the Cup, but what about the players who had no knowledge of the situation? They worked their whole lives to achieve at the highest level.

      A lot of people are saying that you’re comment is creating a scenario that hasn’t been seriously proposed.
