He has been charged with four separate counts of non-criminal harassment and one count of criminal trespassing.

We generally don’t like to report on personal things such as this, but this looks bad on the organization and the city. When the Sabres acquired Kane, they had high hopes and even waited for him to recover from an injury for a season.
