Report: NHL's investigation into Evander Kane to wrap up by camp
The NHL's investigation into gambling allegations made against Evander Kane is expected to wrap up before the start of training camp in mid-September, league deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in an email to The Mercury News' Curtis Pashelka.
Daly also added that the San Jose Sharks forward has not been suspended.
Evander's wife, Anna, said he threw his own games for gambling reasons in a series of Instagram stories posted Saturday. The NHL released a statement of its own, saying the league would be taking her allegations "very seriously."
The following day, Evander denied Anna's claims, tweeting, "I have NEVER gambled/bet on hockey, NEVER gambled/bet on a Sharks game, NEVER gambled/bet on any of my games, and NEVER thrown a hockey game."
