Evander Kane is lucky he plays in the NHL. If this were any other sport, a lot of off the ice incidents would be a lot bigger story. He is lucky he wasn’t arrested for this because it is illegal to use a fake vaccination card, and many states and countries are making an example out of people who do.
Kane had to file for bankruptcy to cover his gambling debts, if you haven’t been following along. His pregnant wife accused him of domestic abuse after leaving her for his old girlfriend and taking the G-Wagon with him. His wife then snitched to the NHL that he had been throwing and betting on games to cover his new gambling debts. Reports came out his teammates didn’t even want him back on the team, and now this.
On Oct. 6, a report from Front Office Sports revealed that Kane submitted a fake vaccination card to the league and the San Jose Sharks, which is an illegal offense in both Canada and the United States.
“I would like to apologize to my teammates, the San Jose Sharks organization, and all Sharks fans for violating the NHL COVID protocols,” Kane said in a statement. “I made a mistake, one I sincerely regret and take responsibility for. During my suspension, I will continue to participate in counseling to help me make better decisions in the future. When my suspension is over, I plan to return to the ice with great effort, determination, and love for the game of hockey.”
The NHL also stated that the allegations of domestic assault from Kane’s estranged wife Anna, “could not be substantiated.”
He isn’t getting paid for the 21 games he will miss, which is basically a quarter of the season.
If he does have gambling debts, that surely isn’t going to help. If there is a real-life Squid Games out there, Kane would definitely be in it.
