No Regrets By Evander Kane For His Recent Remarks

from Curtis Pashelka of the Mercury News,

Sharks forward Evander Kane said Monday he wouldn’t take back critical comments he made regarding how officials handled an altercation in an emotionally charged Sept. 29 preseason game that preceded his three-game suspension by the NHL.

Following the exhibition game against the host Vegas Golden Knights, Kane condemned the way lineman Kiel Murchison handled an altercation late in the third period between himself and defenseman Deryk Engelland, saying in part, “Talk about abuse of an official? How about abuse of a player? It’s an absolute joke.”

Asked Monday if he thought the punishment was fair, Kane said, “I’m sure you guys have heard my comments about it after the game. I stand by what I said.”

During the altercation with Engelland, Kane inadvertently slashed Murchison when he retaliated to a cross check by Engelland. Murchison then left Engelland’s side to grab the front of Kane’s jersey.
