Kevin Cheveldayoff Joel Quenneville Chicago Blackhawks Report – .

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman on Tuesday announced plans to host “personal meetings in the near future” with Florida Panthers head coach Joel Quenneville and Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff at following the independent investigation commissioned by the Chicago Blackhawks into allegations that an assistant coach sexually assaulted two players in 2010.
The investigation showed that Quenneville, who was the head coach of the Blackhawks at the time, and Cheveldayoff, who was the team’s assistant general manager, were made aware of the allegations in 2010 along with members of the front office John McDonough, Al MacIsaac, Stan Bowman, Jay Blunk and James Gary, and chose not to act during the team’s run for the Stanley Cup.

The Blackhawks, who were fined $ 2 million by the NHL on Tuesday, parted ways with Bowman and MacIsaac, who were the only two in the group listed as still employed by the team.

“Cheveldayoff and Quenneville, who are currently employed by NHL clubs other than the Blackhawks [the Winnipeg Jets and the Florida Panthers, respectively], I plan to arrange personal meetings in the near future with the two to discuss their roles in relevant events, as detailed in the report, ”Bettman said in a statement. “I will reserve judgment on next steps, if any, with respect to them. “

Quenneville, who was fired by the Blackhawks in the 2018-19 season, won the first of three Stanley Cups with the team in 2010. The 63-year-old joined the Panthers in April 2019 and is starting his third season with the team.

Cheveldayoff, who has served as general manager of the Jets since 2011, said in July he had “no knowledge of any allegations involving Mr. Aldrich” until he was asked the question just before the end. of his tenure with the Blackhawks.
