Rumor: Blackhawks Looking to Trade Patrick Kane

patrick kane trade rumors

The Chicago Blackhawks have answered trade calls from at least five different teams and are looking to move Patrick Kane following the police investigation of Kane for allegedly raping a woman in Buffalo last month.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports:

At least five teams contacted the Hawks once the Buffalo News first reported the investigation — which involves Kane and a woman at his Hamburg home — and said they’d be willing trade partners should the Hawks decide to cut ties with their superstar winger, according to a league source.
The 26-year-old is entering the first year of a record-setting eight-year, $84-million contract.

Per a team source, the organization is image-conscious and feels disrespected by Kane’s actions, especially given his past transgressions. The organization also disliked Kane's comments at the Stanley Cup parade, where he said, "I know you said I’ve been growing up, but watch out for me the next week."

EA Sports dropped Kane off the cover of its NHL ’16 video game. Will the Blackhawks be the next to drop Patrick Kane?
