Friday Links: Kane and Matthews Making the News

Good Afternoon! I hope you’re enjoying your Friday. Here are few of the headlines making the news in the hockey world today.

This is what you we already know; Chicago Blackhawks All-Pro forward Patrick Kane is making the news, and not in a good way. According to the Buffalo News, Kane is the subject of an investigation for an incident that occurred at his residence last weekend. Details of the event have been slow to emerge.

As with any criminal investigation, a subject is assumed innocent until proven guilty. I would caution anyone jumping to hasty conclusions until we have more information.
