The current Evander Kane situation has plenty of layers to the drama.
We’ve at least got an answer to one layer.
The NHL announced that it has concluded it’s investigation into allegations by his soon to be ex-wife that he gambled on NHL games including San Jose Sharks games that he played in.
A guilty verdict would have him banned from the NHL for life.
The NHL announced that he has been cleared of all allegations.
"The investigation uncovered no evidence to corroborate Ms. Kane’s accusations that Mr. Kane bet or otherwise participated in gambling on NHL games, and no evidence to corroborate the allegations that Mr. Kane 'threw' games or did not put forward his best effort to help the Sharks win games," the league announced Wednesday. "To the contrary, the evidence raises doubts about the veracity of the allegations."
