The former hockey player “Chicago” has filed a lawsuit against the club, according to Wbez. The player’s name is not disclosed.
The reason for the claim was an incident that occurred in May 2010 with one of the team’s coaches. According to the statement, in one of the episodes, coach Brad Aldrich, who worked as a video coach at the club, turned on porn and began to masturbate in front of a Chicago player without his consent.
In addition, according to the lawsuit, he sent text messages to the player, in which he threatened to harm the hockey player if he did not have sexual intercourse with him. The hockey player informed James Gary, the team’s head coach, about this, but he said that the hockey player should blame himself. In addition, the same employee committed sexual violence against another player.
The lawyers demand from the club over $ 150 thousand in compensation, since this episode “ruined the life of a hockey player.”
Aldrich is not currently employed at the club. He has been part of Chicago since 2008, and in 2010 he worked with the US team at the Olympics. At the same time, the coach denies all accusations against him.
