NHL.com: Evander Kane testimony.

“Unfortunately I would like to address the completely FALSE allegations my estranged wife and soon-to-be ex-wife made against me. Even against the advice of my legal team, I have a strong feeling that the public and fans are hearing this directly from me. I have NEVER played / bet on hockey, NEVER played / bet on a Sharks game, NEVER PLAYED / bet on any of my games and NEVER threw a hockey game. The facts are that last year I had my best season of my career and it was the most consistent I’ve ever had, I’m proud of that. I love the game of hockey and would never do anything that is said to be. I’m looking forward to working with the league’s investigations, to the release of my name and to the coming season. “

Steven Ellis from SI: Kane filed for bankruptcy in January with $ 26.8 million in debt.

Since then, a professional bank has filed a $ 15 million lawsuit for “punitive and exemplary damages for defendant Kane’s fraud … ten times the damages.”
