Sharks' Kane ejected for abuse of officials

San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane was ejected from the team’s final preseason game against the Vegas Golden Knights for an abuse of officials infraction.

The incident occurred at the 12:51 mark of the third period when Kane became involved in an altercation with Golden Knights defenceman Deryk Engelland.  A linesman separates the two players and knocks Kane to the ice in the process, when the two get up, Kane appears to shove the official in the chest.

Kane was assessed a 10-minute misconduct and a game misconduct on the play.

Engelland picked up a cross-checking minor and a misconduct.

Earlier in the game the 28-year-old also picked up a roughing minor and a fighting major for battles with Golden Knights forward Valentin Zykov.

Kane finished the game with an assist and 27 minutes in penalties.


Who wanted this guy again?  Thank your lucky stars he isn't a member of this team.

I thought abusing an official was a positive around here?

Honestly, Kane should not get any further discipline. He was admittedly careless with the slash which appears to have hit the linesman, although I think he was (rightfully) surprised that the linesman had chased after them and gotten in between them like that. 


With regard to the push at the end, the linesman deserved a solid punch to the face after effectively tackling Kane to the ice. 


This sequence looks worse on the linesman than on Kane to me. 

Decades ago a similar thing happened to Richard and he got up and punched the official out.   He was suspended the rest of the year (it’s was close to done) ... and then MTL had their famous riot.   Officials make mistakes - this one cost Kane three games but thankfully he had the composure to not hit him.

Listening to him on 1040 this past summer showed me how out of touch he was concerning..... just about everything that came out of his mouth.


This guy isn't all that smart. 


He's a slow growing cancer within a room. He's a bone head.

I suppose it's predictable that so many here are blaming the official, but I'm going to bet that very few of them have ever reffed a hockey game.


I've done hundreds and I can tell you that it's a no win situation. Part of the job is to break up fights and second guessing from the safety of your couch is easy. Stepping in between two guys that are far bigger and stronger than you is hard.....yet, we do it because we're supposed to....


The NHL will always have a never ending supply of officials, because it's the highest level, but for those of you who like to play Rec, or Oldtimers, you should probably think about this. I used to do several games a season. It was basically how I paid for my own entry fee. (Two games on Sunday night.....play one, ref the other)


I don't ref anymore. After a while, the complaining and swearing from players in a league where we don't even keep standings becomes too much. It just wasn't worth the 30 bucks per game anymore. I still get calls / texts from the guys who run the league and the answer is still no.


Officials are untouchable, full stop.

San Jose Sharks' Evander Kane sued by casino over $500K gambling markers

The San Jose Sharks won their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Vegas Golden Knights last spring, but Evander Kane might have taken the biggest loss.

Kane has been sued by The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for failure to pay back $500,000 in gambling markers, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Court documents state that Kane took out eight credits of varying amounts — between $20,000 and $100,000 — on or about April 15, according to the report.

The Cosmopolitan is also seeking the cost of its legal fees in addition to repayment of the $500,000.

The Sharks faced the Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena for Games 3 and 4 of the first round on April 14 and 16, respectively. Kane had zero points in the two games and was a combined minus-3 as the Golden Knights won both contests. Coincidentally, Kane became public enemy No. 1 among Las Vegas hockey fans after scrapping with Golden Knights' Ryan Reaves in Game 3 and being ejected for sucker-punching Colin Miller in Game 4.

That Kane was allegedly building up a half-million-dollar gambling debt in between those games adds an interesting twist to the narrative that surrounded the series, which ultimately went to the Sharks.

A player could be -650, have zero goals or points in their past 200 games, be diagnosed with boneitis and openly admit to being the Zodiac killer and there are people who would still want them here if they were from BC.

Sadly you are correct.
