Hawks suspend prospect Garret Ross after ‘revenge-porn’ charge

Garret E. Ross | Rockford IceHogs

The Blackhawks have suspended prospect Garret Ross after Ross was charged with a felony commonly known as “revenge porn.”

“On Saturday afternoon, March 19, 2016, the Chicago Blackhawks and Rockford IceHogs learned of a legal proceeding against IceHogs player Garret Ross. At that time, we excused Garret from team activities pending our preliminary review of the matter,” the Blackhawks said in a statement released by the team Wednesday afternoon. “After further review, we have determined to suspend Garret indefinitely pending the outcome of the legal process. Because this is a pending legal proceeding, we will have no further comment at this time.”

Ross, 23, was a fifth-round draft pick by the Blackhawks in 2012. He played in 59 games for the Rockford IceHogs this season.
