Kane Will Not Participate in Sharks Training Camp “Until Further Notice”

Evander Kane will not take part in San Jose Sharks training camp tomorrow.

Earlier today, Kane was cleared by the NHL of estranged wife Anna Kane’s accusations that he gambled on hockey games. Anna Kane, however, filed allegations yesterday that Evander Kane physically and sexually abused her, which the league is currently investigating.

BREAKING: Kane Didn’t Bet on Hockey, Domestic Violence Investigation Ongoing

In response to this investigation, the San Jose Sharks issued this statement:

“The San Jose Sharks are aware of additional allegations that are unrelated to the National Hockey League’s initial investigation of Evander Kane. We take the allegations very seriously and have been in communication with the NHL. The League will continue to have our full cooperation regarding the ongoing investigation.

“The Sharks and Evander have agreed that he will not be participating in Sharks 2021 Training Camp until further notice.

“The Sharks will have no further comment on this matter at this time.”

This isn’t the first time that Kane has been accused of sex-related violence.

In 2015, Kane was the subject of a sexual assault investigation; he didn’t face any criminal charges. The following year, he was accused of sexual harassment; charges were dismissed after a plea agreement.

GM Doug Wilson and head coach Bob Boughner should both be addressing the media tomorrow.

This is all so exhausting. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be his teammate. All we can do at this point is speculate, which doesn’t really do much. But the Twitter thread by A.J. Perez linked in the previous piece is somewhat illuminating. It leaves me thinking nothing will come of this, that it’s just part of the ugly back and forth between these two warring parties (with a child sadly caught in the middle). Even if that is the case, which would be for the best since no one wants domestic violence claims to be proven… Read more »

I am a much happier fan when we are getting press for what Jumbo says after Hertl scores 4 goals, than I am when we are getting (yet another) headline about Evander. I know that I am exhausted with it all, I can’t even imagine how the team is feeling.

Yeah, I remember telling myself to enjoy these good times while they last because even without winning the Cup, we were pretty spoiled for a long time. But that doesn’t make this any easier to process now!

So sick of this drama, I can’t imagine what it’s like to be in the room. It’s time to cut the tie if there’s ANY chance of terminating his contract. Don’t need this toxicity in the organization.
