“I have NEVER gambled/bet on hockey, NEVER gambled/bet on a Sharks game, NEVER gambled/bet on any of my games and NEVER thrown a hockey game.”
That’s what Evander Kane fired back with on Twitter this morning, in response to his wife Anna Kane’s allegations that he had gambled on San Jose Sharks games.
Anna Kane also alleged, among other things, that she had been forced to sell her wedding ring to meet expenses and “buy my daughter baby formula.” Evander Kane is currently going through Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
This was Evander Kane’s full statement:

In the last hour or so, Anna Kane countered with these Instagram Stories:
Anna Kane did not add to her accusation that Evander Kane has bet on NHL or San Jose Sharks games, but wrote: “I think mental help is needed after you lose every dollar you ever made gambling but continue to gamble and do not think you have a problem and refuse any kind of therapy and continue to lie to the therapist who the Sharks force you to talk too [sic]!”
She added: “I hope one day you realize that your GAMBLING is the problem. Not an ex wife or anyone else.”
San Jose Hockey Now reached out to the San Jose Sharks for comment about today’s events, receiving this response: “The Sharks will not be commenting further at this time.”
This was how the San Jose Sharks and the NHL responded yesterday to Anna Kane’s allegations:
We intend to conduct a full investigation and will have no further comment at this time. (2/2)
