The NHL has lifted the ban on Stan and Al MacIsaac.

SportsThe NHL has lifted the ban on Stan and Al MacIsaac.

The NHL imposed a three-year exile on them after they failed to act on Kyle Beach's allegations of sexual assault by a video coach. They will be able to find a job with an NHL team as soon as July 10. According to the report, all three men, along with Blackhawks president John McDonough, executive Jay Blunk and assistant GM Kevin Cheveldayoff, were told of Beach's allegations during a meeting. According to the report, mental skills coach Jim Gary brought the allegations to management after hearing them from skills coach PaulVincent who said Quenneville appeared angry and was concerned about upsetting team chemistry. The investigators were told that Quenneville said that it was hard for the team to get where they were.

Aldrich got his day with the trophy after Quenneville gave him a positive job evaluation. Three years later, Aldrich was convicted of criminal sexual conduct with a minor. More than 11 years after the meeting where the allegations were brought to management, the Chicago Blackhawks and Florida panthers both removed their head coaches. Quenneville can now continue his pursuit of the all-time wins record, which is held by Scotty Bowman. Quenneville told the "Cam and Strick" show in April that he felt he deserved a second chance after being a candidate for general manager. I believe there is a place for me in the game.

According to several sources and the league's statement, Quenneville and Bowman have been working their way back into the NHL's good graces. Both spoke with Beach and with other forces for positive change in the NHL. On Monday, the first day of free agency, the NHL announced that the three men had done enough work to return to the league. While it is clear that their responses were unacceptable, each of these three individuals has acknowledged that and used his time away from the game to engage in activities which not only demonstrate sincere remorse for what happened, but also evidence greater awareness of the responsibilities that all NHL personnel. Each has made significant strides in personal improvement by participating in a number of programs that focused on responding in effective and meaningful ways to address alleged acts of abuse.
