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.
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.
