Gary Bettman: Rocky Wirtz Will Not Face Discipline For Comments at Town Hall Event

Chicago Blackhawks

We didn’t actually expect anything to happen, did we?

According to The Athletic’s Mark Lazerus, in a conversation with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, the Blackhawks and Rocky Wirtz will not face any discipline for the outbursts Wirtz displayed on Wednesday night at the Town Hall event.

Earlier in the day, Bettman was asked by ESPN’s Emily Kaplan on “The Point” what his reaction was to the events of Wednesday night with Rocky and Danny Wirtz.

Basically, the same thing.

Phil Thompson of the Chicago Tribune, the other reporter that was on the other end of the Wirtz outbursts along with Mark Lazerus, shared more details on his conversation with Bettman.

Again, basically, “nothing to see here, folk. Move along.” What did we expect?

Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly are scheduled to speak at the NHL All-Star showcase tonight and much of the same should be expected from Bettman and Daly regarding Wirtz and the Blackhawks. IF anything of substance happens there, you’ll hear about it here.
