After more than two years, the NHL has lifted its bans on former coach Joel Quenneville and two executives involved in the mishandling of 2010's Chicago Blackhawks scandal.

Kyle Beach suffered at the hands of the Chicago Blackhawks' video coach in 2010, and the situation has haunted the NHL ever since. After years of flying under the radar, their former head coach Joel Quenneville, and executives Stan Bowman and Al MacIsaac had their mishandling of allegations uncovered. Subsequently, the Florida Panthers head coach resigned, and he and both other parties were banned from the league.
"Florida Panthers announce Joel Quenneville has resigned from his head coaching position with the team"

Now, more than two years after their ban, all three parties are now reinstated by the NHL. Joel Quenneville, Stan Bowman, and Al MacIsaac will be eligible for positions in the league after July tenth.
"#NHL announces that former #Blackhawks executives Stan Bowman, Joel Quenneville and Al MacIsaac have been reinstated and are now eligible to seek employment in the league again.

Can be hired after July 10."

Naturally, this has become a very divided matter in the hockey world. Many fans feel that John Quenneville did not know the extent of the issues he mishandled, while others see any reinstatement as a failure of the NHL.
"We failed Kyle Beach, and continue to do so."

Whether or not any of these parties can get a job in the league remains in question. With only one team still looking for a coach, it could be a while before Coach Q is back in the NHL.
"#CBJ plan to have a head coach in place within a week.

Told former Blues, Avs and Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville, reinstated by #NHL today and eligible to be hired as of July 10, is not a candidate.

Columbus is currently the only head coaching vacancy in the league."
