Jonathan Toews, who was originally supposed to be on the cover with Kane, will now be on the cover alone:


Kane has been accused of raping a women in his home after meeting her in a club in Buffalo, New York, in early August. She alleged that Kane invited her and a friend back to his house, followed her into a room in his home and "overpowered her and raped her," according to the Buffalo News. The woman who made the allegations reportedly had "bite marks on her shoulders and a scratch on her leg after the alleged attack." The report then claims she immediately left and called a relative while also going to the hospital before police were called.

Kane is one of the NHL's superstars and was a driving force in his team's run to another Stanley Cup title. He scored 27 goals and added 37 assists in the regular season while notching 23 points in the playoffs.
