On the heels of the news regarding the 'revenge porn' charges in DeKalb County of Rockford Ice Hogs player Garret Ross, the Chicago Blackhawks have issued a statement.

Ross, 23, who is a left winger for the Rockford Icehogs, is accused of sharing an pornographic video that was sent to him in August of 2015.

The Daily Chronicle reports that Ross is accused of using an explicit video of a Sycamore woman to get revenge because he blamed her for his girlfriend breaking up with him.

The unidentified Sycamore woman contacted Sycamore Police in September of 2015 because she became concerned the video was being disseminated to other individuals without her consent

WIFR-TV reports that, in Illinois, it is illegal to share private sexual images or video without the consent of all the parties involved.

The Chicago Blackhawks reads as follows:

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.

If convicted, Ross could face one to three years in prison.
