A Statement From Andrew Shaw And The Chicago Blackhawks

Andrew Shaw

“I am sincerely sorry for the insensitive remarks that I made last night while in the penalty box. When I got home and saw the video, it was evident that what I did was wrong, no matter the circumstances. I apologize to many people, including the gay and lesbian community, the Chicago Blackhawks organization, Blackhawks fans and anyone else I may have offended. I know my words were hurtful and I will learn from my mistake."

Chicago Blackhawks

“We are extremely disappointed in Andrew Shaw's actions last night. His comments do not reflect what we stand for as an organization. We are proud to have an inclusive and respectful environment, and to support various initiatives such as the You Can Play Project and the Chicago Gay Hockey Association. We will use this opportunity to further educate our players and organization moving forward, so that we all may learn from it."

“I saw the incriminating evidence, then I realized it was wrong, because I was boned.” Essentially.

Nice.

Class act. Glad they are almost done for the season. He sounded like HS bully who was overcompensating for something. Hmmm.
