Is Kyle Beach a John Doe? Consider the sexual assault charges levelled against Blackhawks’ Brad Aldrich.
Kyle Beach is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently committed to DVTK Jegesmedvek in the Slovak Extraliga. The Chicago Blackhawks selected him in the first round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
The Chicago Blackhawks underwent significant personnel changes on Tuesday, as well as the release of a long-awaited investigation into sexual assault claims and NHL punishments.
Stan Bowman, Chicago’s general manager and president of hockey operations, resigned after the conclusions of an independent law firm.
The NHL fined the club $2 million for “poor internal systems and inadequate and untimely response.” Al MacIsaac, one of the team’s greatest hockey players, is also out.
Kyle will then take over as the Blackhawks’ interim general manager.

Brad Aldrich Sexual Assault Allegations Against the Chicago Blackhawks
The findings of an investigation into a sexual assault by a Chicago Blackhawks coach were made public on October 26 (Tuesday). Throughout the investigation, 139 witnesses were questioned, including the victim and Bradley Aldrich.
According to one former player, Aldrich attacked him and the club took no action when he reported the incident to a management. According to the complaint, Aldrich attacked another unnamed Blackhawks player. It was filed in Cook County Circuit Court on May 7.
The former athlete named ‘John Doe’ filed the complaint and is seeking more than $150,000 in damages.
According to the eight-page complaint, Aldrich ‘turned on porn and began masturbating in front of the athlete without his consent’ while working as a video coach for the Blackhawks at the time. Aldrich reportedly threatened the athlete with bodily, financial, and psychological damage if he would not engage in sexual activity with him.
Aldrich was then sentenced to nine months in prison for the Michigan attack.
