Blackhawks postpone Marian Hossa's upcoming legacy night

Ben Ennis and Stephen Brunt discuss Gary Bettman and Bill Daly taking questions from the media about the Chicago Blackhawks sexual assault investigation and where league must go from here.

The Chicago Blackhawks have postponed an upcoming legacy night for Marian Hossa in light of the team's sexual misconduct scandal.

The original date for the legacy night was Nov. 9.

"After further discussion between (CEO) Danny Wirtz, (president of business operations) Jaime Faulkner and Marian, everyone agreed that this is an important time for our organization to reflect rather than celebrate," the Blackhawks organization said in a statement.

Hossa was a member of the 2009-10 Stanley Cup-winning Blackhawks team, the same year Kyle Beach was allegedly a victim of sexual assault at the hands of former Chicago video coach Brad Aldrich.

Hossa will be enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame on Nov. 15 as part of the 2020 class.
