Other players from the 2009-10 Blackhawks team are also being contacted by Jenner & Block. Several have told the law firm they won't cooperate without having their own lawyers present for interviews.

Vincent told TSN that in a meeting in San Jose, California, with then-Blackhawks president John McDonough, vice president of hockey operations Al MacIsaac, general manager Stan Bowman and team sports psychologist James Gary ahead of the Western Conference Final in 2010, he shared allegations from two Blackhawks players who said then-video coach Brad Aldrich sexually assaulted them.
