Evander Kane Facing Non-Criminal Harassment Charges

from Lou Michel of the Buffalo News,

Sabres forward Evander Kane put his hands on four people - three women and a man - at a Chippewa Street bar during the early morning of June 24 but he will face non-criminal harassment charges for his actions against just two women, two police sources familiar with the case told The Buffalo News.

The charges will be lodged in connection with grabbing two women – one of them by the neck - and are based on witness statements and surveillance camera video, the police sources said.

Kane also yanked the hair and grabbed the throat of a third woman, but she has not come forward to press charges, the sources said. In addition, Kane grabbed a bouncer after the bouncer warned the hockey star to stop his aggressive behavior, the police sources said.

Well, if the last name is any indication I’m sure it was all a misunderstanding of some sort.

The allegations, if substantiated, would seem to conflict with the resident Sabres contributor’s prior recommendation that a new post-Jets narrative is warranted for Kane.

What is it with Buffalo and Kanes?  Must be a heck of a bar scene.

Just misunderstood….double-standard…people are just jealous….


Good for Winnepeg to have gotten some value for him while shipping him out of town.

One would assume Tim Murray is rapidly tiring of incident after incident, too.

Buffalo is improving pretty steadily and before long, Kane might be addition by subtraction.

Next stop: NBA hanger-on…until the money runs out.
