Controversy seems to follow former Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane, whether it be flashing cash on a balcony in Vegas during the 2012 lockout, the tracksuit incident with teammates in Winnipeg, assaulting women in a bar in Buffalo in 2016, or the gambling and marital issues that led to his contract being terminated by San Jose.

In Edmonton, the 31-year-old has been able to get his on-ice career straightened out, but off the ice, Kane continues to be a magnet for problems. On Friday, he announced that he was parting ways with the Hockey Diversity Alliance, which he was a founding member in 2020.
Kane cited that the HDA is now being led by “members with individual agendas”. The HDA responded with a statement saying Kane had not been involved with the organization for more than two years and that when he declared bankruptcy in 2021, he was disqualified from being a director of the group and had not participated in meetings.
