MEDIA UPDATE: NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will address media on Monday afternoon

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will meet with reporters via Zoom on Monday at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT to address the Chicago Blackhawks sexual assault scandal.

The media availability comes two days after Bettman met with Kyle Beach, who revealed himself as one of the alleged victims of former Blackhawks video coach Brad Aldrich.

Beach spoke with TSN’s Rick Westhead last Wednesday and posted a statement on Twitter on Thursday expressing gratitude for the support he had received in the past few days.

Susan Loggans, an attorney representing Beach in a lawsuit against the team, said Bettman expressed his “sincere regret” over what Beach had experienced. He also offered the NHL’s help with psychological services and anything else that the league had available.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
