The NHL has lifted its ban on longtime coach Joel Quenneville, as well as executives Stan Bowman and Al MacIsaac, allowing them to return to the league.

The new arrives more than two years after they were punished for their inadequate response to the Chicago Blackhawks scandal.
#NHL announces that former #Blackhawks executives Stan Bowman, Joel Quenneville and Al MacIsaac have been reinstated and are now eligible to seek employment in the league again.

Can be hired after July 10.

The league acknowledged things in their statement.
For more than the last two and a half years, these individuals have been ineligible to work for any NHL team due to their inadequate response in 2010 to allegations that Blackhawks player Kyle Beach had been assaulted by the club's video coach. «While their responses were unacceptable at the time, each of these individuals has acknowledged this and used his time away from the game to engage in activities demonstrating sincere remorse and a greater awareness of the responsibilities of NHL personnel, especially those in leadership positions.

An investigation by the Blackhawks revealed the team didn't handle Beach's query properly during the team's 2010 Stanley Cup run. Quenneville, who was the Chicago coach at the time, resigned as coach of the Florida Panthers. Bowman, Chicago's general manager and hockey operations president, and top team executive MacIsaac, also stepped away and all three were placed on the commissioners exempt list.
Bowman will become a top candidate for #Oilers GM vacancy. Believe he was on Edmonton's radar when Jeff Jackson was hired last summer though still ineligible then.

Starting July 10, Bowman, MacIsaac, and Quenneville can sign contracts with NHL teams. Each of them has made significant personal improvements by participating in programs, focusing on their issues.
