A Buffalo judge has officially dismissed charges against Sabres winger Evander Kane stemming from alleged incidents at a local bar last June.

The dismissal Tuesday was based on a plea agreement reached in late October that required Kane to avoid legal issues for six months.

"The time period expired and so the charges were dismissed and the record sealed," Kane's lawyer, Paul Cambria, told The Buffalo News' Harold McNeil.

Kane was charged with misdemeanor trespass and separate noncriminal violations of disorderly conduct and harassment after two female patrons and a bouncer at the bar alleged he had grabbed the women, pulled their hair, and then refused the bouncer's orders to leave.
