The NHL revealed it discovered “no evidence” to support Anna Kane’s declares on Sept. 22. 

Legal difficulties continued for Kane when Anna Kane submitted a limiting order versus him late last month, declaring he physically and sexually attacked her throughout their marital relationship.

He’s coming off a 49-point season (22 objectives, 27 helps) in which his Sharks hopped to a 21-28-7 record and sixth-place surface in the NHL West.
