The NHL Concludes Investigation Of Evander Kane

NEW YORK (Jan. 27, 2022) – The National Hockey League announced today that it has concluded its investigation into the circumstances pursuant to which Evander Kane travelled cross-border during the Holiday Period.

The report prepared in connection with the investigation, which was conducted by Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP, concluded that there was insufficient evidence to “conclusively find that Mr. Kane knowingly made misrepresentations regarding his COVID-19 status or test results in connection with his international travel.”

As a result, the League has determined not to pursue any additional League-imposed discipline against Kane at the current time.

Kane remains an Unrestricted Free Agent and is currently eligible to sign and to play for any NHL Club without restriction.
