  • Former Chicago Blackhawks prospect Kyle Beach said a team coach sexually assaulted him in 2010.
  • He had previously filed a negligence lawsuit against the Blackhawks under the pseudonym “John Doe.”
  • An independent report has found the Blackhawks didn’t properly investigate Beach’s claims in 2010.

The “John Doe” who accused a Chicago Blackhawks coach of sexual assault in 2010 has revealed himself to be former team prospect Kyle Beach.

Beach opened up about the sexual assault allegations he made against former Blackhawks video coach Brad Aldrich in an interview with Canada’s TSN on Wednesday.

The interview came a day after Chicago law firm Jenner & Block published an independent investigation into the team’s handling of the allegations.

“To be honest, I was scared mostly. I was fearful. I had my career threatened. I felt alone and dark,” Beach told TSN anchor Rick Westhead.

He added: “And I didn’t know what to do as a 20-year-old. I would never dream, or you could never imagine being put in this situation by somebody who’s supposed to be there to help you and to make you a better hockey player and a better person and continue to build your career.”

Beach had reported his claims in May 2010, according to Jenner & Block’s report published on Tuesday.

The report determined Blackhawks president of hockey operations and general manager Stan Bowman and other team executives failed to properly investigate Beach’s claim that Aldrich assaulted him.

Days after the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in June 2010, however, human resources met with Aldrich and told him that he could resign or an investigation would begin.

Aldrich chose to resign, and in 2013 pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal sexual conduct in connection to an incident involving a former Michigan high school hockey player, CBS News reported.

After the Jenner & Block report was made public, Bowman resigned from the Blackhawks and from his role as the general manager of the 2022 US Olympic Men’s Ice Hockey Team.

Beach, who has filed a negligence lawsuit against the Chicago Blackhawks, is now playing hockey for a team in Erfurt, Germany.

He said Bowman resigning was a good step for the Blackhawks.

“They accepted accountability and they took actions necessary, albeit too late,” he told TSN.
