Police in Western New York confirmed Friday that Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane is the subject of an ongoing investigation.

"The town of Hamburg (N.Y.) police department is investigating an incident that allegedly occurred at the residence of NHL player Patrick Kane last weekend," Hamburg police chief Gregory Wickett said in a statement.

"At this time, we are gathering information and awaiting forensic testing results. We will have no further comment on this investigation at this time."

Kane is being investigated after an accusation of sexual assault, the Buffalo News reported Thursday.

No charges have been filed.

The Blackhawks and the NHL issued statements Thursday confirming knowledge of the investigation and declining further comment.
