Brad Aldrich Death and Sexual Assault Scandal Explored
John Doe became the prey of the sexual intents of the coach Brad Aldrich back in May 2010.
At the time, the Blackhawks were playing the Canucks during the second round of the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs.
Video coach Aldrich invited John Doe over inducing him that “he had the power to get John Doe onto the Blackhawks’ roster”.
John Doe stated that “Aldrich threatened him by telling him he needed to act like he enjoyed the sexual encounter or he would never play in the NHL ‘or walk’ again”.
Aldrich then forcibly performed sexual acts before threatening him again with a souvenir baseball bat.
Even as of now, Aldrich said the encounter was consensual while John Doe does not say so.
After the encounter, John Doe had seemed the help of many Blackhawks executives and ultimately the board who turned him down.
Now that the investigation is over, many Blackhwaks executives have been removed from their position while Aldrich’s further fate is yet to be decided.
Similarly, other victims have also come forward with their stories and have sued Blackhawks for supporting Aldrich. The victims have been named as John Doe 2 and upcoming numbers.
