CHICAGO – The Blackhawks have taken action against a prospect charged with “revenge porn” this past weekend.

On Wednesday afternoon the team released a statement saying that Rockford Ice Hogs player Garret Ross has been “suspended indefinitely” after charges of non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images or “revenge porn” were levied against him.

“On Saturday afternoon, March 19, 2016, the Chicago Blackhawks and Rockford IceHogs learned of a legal proceeding against IceHogs player Garret Ross. At that time, we excused Garret from team activities pending our preliminary review of the matter. After further review, we have determined to suspend Garret indefinitely pending the outcome of the legal process. Because this is a pending legal proceeding, we will have no further comment at this time.”

The 23-year old prospect has been with the Blackhawks since the team drafted him in the 5th round of the 2012 NHL Draft. He signed a three-year entry level contract with the team in 2013.
