Blackhawks sexual assault scandal: Our latest reporting and commentary

Major organizational changes are coming to the Hawks as part of the fallout from the team’s mishandling of 2010 sexual-assault allegations.

The Chicago Blackhawks will be searching for new leadership after the team parted ways with its top two hockey executives as part of the fallout from the scandal over the team’s handling of 2010 sexual assault allegations against former coach Bradley Aldrich.

Stan Bowman’s 12-year reign as the Blackhawks’ general manager and hockey operations president ended Tuesday. Technically, he resigned from his position. Bowman’s right hand man, Al MacIsaac, was also forced out.

Their departures headlined a major organizational overhaul after an independent investigation conducted by the Chicago law firm Jenner & Block, which said it interviewed 139 witnesses over the past four months.
