Kane subject of police investigation
CHICAGO, IL (The Spread) - Blackhawks' star Patrick Kane is the subject of a police investigation in the Buffalo suburb of Hamburg, where he lives in the offseason.
As of this writing, Kane has not been charged with a crime and the Hamburg police remain tight-lipped on the situation. The investigation reportedly involves a woman that Kane met at a bar in nearby Evans, New York. Two law enforcement sources have told The Buffalo News that Kane is being investigated for an alleged rape incident.
“We are aware of the matter and are in the process of gathering information,” the Hawks said in a release. “It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Blackhawks are currently 13/2 favorites to win the 2016 Stanley Cup after hoisting the trophy for the third time since 2010 this past summer. Kane scored 27 goals, registered 37 assists and racked up 64 points this past season.
