Patrick Kane hires lawyer amid investigation; spends day with Cup privately

Jerry Lai / USA TODAY

The ongoing police investigation into Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane did not delay his day with the Stanley Cup.

The 26-year-old spent Saturday - his scheduled day with the Cup - privately among family, according to John Wawrow of the Associated Press. Blackhawks spokesman Brandon Faber confirmed Kane's plans.

Attorney Paul Cambria told the AP he's been hired as Kane's representation.

Cambria represented Kane when he pleaded guilty to a non-criminal charge of disorderly conduct after being accused of assaulting a cab driver in 2009.

Hamburg, N.Y. police chief Gregory Wickett confirmed Friday that his department is investigating Kane over an alleged incident last weekend, and that it is gathering information and awaiting forensic test results.

Kane's original plans for his day with the Cup reportedly included a visit to the Women and Children's Hospital in Buffalo as well as a celebration at a downtown bar.
