San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane will need a heavy dose of help and maybe an injection of common sense. With those lame puns out of the way, Kane is in hot water right now after allegedly using a fake COVID-19 vaccine card.
According to a report by ESPN, the NHL is already looking into the matter, including the allegations of Kane’s estranged wife, Anna Kane, that he physically assaulted and sexually abused her in the past. The report added that there’s still no timeline for the completion of the probe, perhaps giving Kane more time to gather his excuses.
The Sharks have yet to issue a statement on the matter.
It’s unclear when and where Kane used the reported fake COVID-19 vaccine card, but it’s clearly stated that it’s against the rules of the NHL. Not to mention, it’s illegal in the United States and Canada (and presumably in every corner of the globe).
The 30-year-old Kane has yet to report to the Sharks, with the team’s opening game coming soon on October 16 against the Winnipeg Jets. The highly controversial player, who was recently cleared of allegations of betting on NHL games, is three seasons into his $49 million, seven-year deal with the Sharks.
The report by ESPN pointed out that the NHL’s COVID-19 protocols remain vague, but Kane could be suspended if proven that he used a fake COVID-19 vaccine card.
