The Chicago Blackhawks have apologized to the Winnipeg Jets and the NHL after their fans removed Jets defenseman Adam Pardy's helmet and poured beer on him last Wednesday.

The Chicago Blackhawks have apologized to the Winnipeg Jets and the NHL for the beer-pouring incident last Wednesday. 

According to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune, Blackhawks left wing Brandon Bollig ran Jets defenseman Adam Pardy into the boards which came loose. With Pardy's upper body was sticking into the crowd, a fan yanked off his helmet and put it on his head. A female fan proceed to pour beer over Pardy's head.  

The team released a statement which stated the concerned individuals were dealt with accordingly. 

"We have spoken to those involved in the incident with an opposing player late in our home game last night at the United Center. The individuals were immediately ejected from the arena to preserve the safety of everyone in attendance, including other fans, players and officials. We have also been in communication with the Winnipeg Jets and the NHL to convey our organization's apologies." 

The fan who wore Pardy's helmet as identified as car dealer Kevin Mize. His female counterpart's identity has yet to be released. 

Kuc described Pardy's demeanor after the incident as "good-natured." Pardy spoke up nonetheless.

"I definitely smelled a little booze for about six minutes. I guess somebody reached around (and took the helmet). I don't know what happened to my stick, either -- that got lost in the crowd, too. A little insult to injury there.

"It was tough enough to get put through the glass but then to get a beer thrown on my head, too, was not a good thing." 

Bollig's teammate, forward Patrick Sharp, was in awe of the hit on Pardy.

"I think the fan stole the show by stealing the guy's helmet and putting it on, but the more they showed the replay the more you could see how solid the hit was. It was a good forecheck. I know there's a whistle involved, but that was a big hit for sure." 

Sharp, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Brandon Pirri each scored a goal to lead the defending Stanley Cup champions Blackhawks to a 4-1 victory. It was their second win over the Jets in five days.
