All other executives involved in the 2010 incident have also left the Blackhawks.

Blackhawks CEO Danny Wirtz says he has directed the team’s legal dept to try to reach a settlement with both the former Blackhawks player and the former Michigan high school player who have sued the team.

As a result of the investigation, the NHL fined the Blackhawks $2 Million for inadequate procedures and mishandling of the 2010 matter.
