News: 3 days agoKane will not participate at the Sharks' training camp while he is under investigation for allegations of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Spin: Kane was listed initially on the Sharks' training camp roster, but it's not much of a surprise that the team will keep him off the ice while the investigation commences. The NHL and the Sharks will likely provide further information when their investigation is completed.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Kane's a good source of goals and a great source of shots. The veteran winger has a pair of 30-goal seasons under his belt, and he hasn't dropped below 20 in any of the last six. Even more impressively, Kane ranks fifth league-wide in shots over the past five campaigns. He's expected to remain the focal point of San Jose's offense after leading the Sharks in both goals (22) and points (49) over 56 games last season, but Kane's availability has been thrown into doubt by allegations from his wife that he gambled on NHL games. Kane has denied the allegations, but if they're proven true by the league's investigation, he would likely receive a lengthy suspension if not an outright ban. Interested poolies should monitor the situation closely heading into draft day.
