On Saturday, the National Hockey League launched a full investigation into the conduct of San Jose Sharks star Evander Kane after his wife, Anna, made a series of Instagram posts alleging that her husband has been gambling on his own games.
According to Anna Kane, her husband Evander Kane has been throwing games with the San Jose Sharks to fund his gambling addiction. She also accused him of taking vacations and partying while she and his baby are at home without enough money for formula.
San Jose put out its own statement immediately after the league’s announcement.
“The Sharks have been in contact today with the [NHL] about the serious allegations made against Evander Kane,” the team said. “We support a full and transparent investigation into the situation to maintain the integrity of the game and consistency with our team values.”
Back in 2019, Kane was accused of failing to pay back one Las Vegas bookmaker after receiving $500,000 in gambling markers. Just this year, he was the subject of a lawsuit from one of his creditors that accused him of having a “serious gambling problem.”
The 29-year-old Kane scored 22 goals and tallied 27 assists for the Sharks in 56 games last season.
