Evander Kane, suspended ahead, positioned on waivers San Jose Sharks

SAN JOSE (Calif.) — San Jose SharksHave positioned ahead Evander KaneIf he isn't claimed by another group, we will sign waivers and ship him to AHL.

Joe Will, assistant normal supervisor, stated Sunday that Kane was placed on waivers before his 21-game suspension due to the submission of a fake COVID-19 vaccination certificate ends. Kane was eligible for Tuesday's play in New Jersey.

Kane will report to the San Jose Barracuda AHL on Tuesday, if Kane clears waivers. He isn't expected to be available for play until the end of the season.

Will is filling in for Doug Wilson, normal supervisor, who is on medical leave. Kane being placed on waivers gives the group more flexibility than trying to decide what they want to do with Kane.

Will stated Kane has been vaccinated.

Kane, 30 years old, is now three seasons into a seven-year, $49 million contract. After being drafted by Atlanta/Winnipeg and his debut with the team, Kane is now with his third group. He also spent a time in Buffalo.

Final season, he had 22 goals and 27 assists in 56 games.

Kane is not the only one who has been troubled by a vaccination issue. The NHL was also investigating home assault allegations made against Kane by his estranged wife, Anna Kane in a recent divorce filing. The NHL asserted a 21-game suspension because of “its concurrent investigation into allegations regarding Kane's home abuse by his estranged spouse. [Anna]”

Anna Kane accused Kane of placing bets on NHL games and his own games with the Sharks. She claimed that he was trying to influence the outcomes for his profit. Kane was cleared by the NHL after it investigated and found no evidence that Kane had ever wagered on hockey.

The Sharks informed Kane, even before the suspension, that he was not to report to coaching camp.
