San Jose Sharks winger Evander Kane has had one of the most eventful offseasons for any athlete. He had been accused of gambling on NHL games he played in, his wife divorced him and aired all of his dirty laundry. It was also reported that Kane’s teammates don’t like him and essentially want him off the team.
Now there is a new report that the NHL is looking into about whether Kane submitted a fake COVID-19 vaccination card, according to Front Office Sports’ A.J. Perez. The news broke after the league just cleared Kane from any wrongdoing of allegations by his estranged wife that he bet on his games. However, the NHL is currently investigating abuse claims, also made by Anna Kane.
For anyone that gets caught using a fake COVID-19 vaccination card, you can be sent to prison for up to five years in the US. In Canada, if you attempt to enter the country with a fake COVID-19 vaccination card, you could be fined up to $750,000 and be sent to prison for six months. Unlike the NFL and NBA, the NHL doesn’t have any punishments for violating COVID protocols which the league hasn’t made clear, but they did make it clear that a lack of compliance could lead to forfeiting games, individual and club fines, and even loss of draft choices.
Kane’s attorney told Perez that Kane “denies ever abusing Ms. Kane or their daughter Kensington, whom he cherishes.”
While Kane’s newest problem comes to the surface, the San Jose Sharks have said Kane will not be attending the team’s training camp “until further notice.”
Kane won’t be suiting up for the Sharks any time soon. If the NHL decides to turn him, he could be looking at jail time. Kane really needs to think about his life choices.
