Kane pleads “not guilty”


The talks of whether or not the Sabres should trade Evander Kane have slowed down over the last few days, but this morning the forward is the center of attention again.

Kane was spotted heading into Buffalo City Court for his arraignment this morning.

Kane turned himself in on July 22, so remember that this was expected.

Kane has pleaded not guilty and will appear in court again on September 9. The maximum sentence for Kane would be 90 days, however, the DA commented that offenders rarely see jail time for these types of offenses.

There is a chance that the team or the league can also punish the forward, which could have him miss time to begin the season.

Either way, will Kane be able to carry himself in a professional manager from here on out? He has been causing headaches for the Sabres PR, but perhaps this is the wake up call he needed.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
