More Trouble for Patrick Kane

English

If you haven’t already, “Kaner” is being accused of rape by woman near his home town of Buffalo, New York. The woman alleges that the Chicago Blackhawks forward met her in a bar and then took her to his home. The unnamed woman then left Patrick Kane’s home and went straight to the hospital with a friend.

 

Earlier this week, reports came out that the DNA test results came back negative. That means no trace of Kane’s DNA was found in the woman’s genital area. However, this does not confirm his innocence.

 

 

Fighting in Hockey: Yay or Nay

Hockey is commonly known as the most popular sport in Canada. Hockey has had controversial moments in the past pertaining to violence but the most predominant in this day and age is hockey fights. Hockey is one of, if not the only sport which is not centered around fighting that “allows” fighting during the game. Hockey rules do of course punish fighting, but not nearly as severely as other sports do. The punishment for fighting in most major hockey leagues is a mere five minutes in the penalty box, with no other repercussions to the perpetrators or their teams.
