Former Sabre suspended 3 games

Kane ejected in final preseason game after slashing official

Evander Kane was ejected from the San Jose Sharks final preseason game on Sunday after he got physical with an official. 





There was a slash that looked to be intended for Deryk Engelland, but it connected with the official instead. After that, Kane was brought down to the ice and wasn’t too pleased with that, and then shoved that same official. Here’s a good look at it:

Kane had a bigger problem with the way he was brought down to the ice, saying it was an absolute joke that the official treated him that way.

“I get kicked out of the game for getting jumped from behind by a referee. I’ve never seen a ref take five strides,” Kane said, according to ESPN. “If you look at his face, he’s getting all this power and he’s trying to drive me into the ice, which is what he did. That’s unbelievable. Talk about abuse of an official? How about abuse of a player?”

On Tuesday, Kane was handed a 3-game suspension by the NHL.
