Evander Kane experiences rejection from the San Jose Sharks organization

According to some rumors, Evander Kane is at a crossroads with the San Jose Sharks. Kevin Kurz of "The Athletic" network reported earlier today that the California organization was fed up with Kane, so they attempted to trade him over the summer.

Some of the Sharks' players would even have a very bad relationship with Evander Kane. That's why the Sharks tried to trade the 30-year-old winger at the beginning of the summer.

Remember that Kane is under investigation for stories of illegal betting, due to accusations from his wife that occurred last week on Instagram. Accusations that Kane had denied.

This story would be, without a doubt, an additional motive to try to deal Kane, who just had his best season in his career. He scored 49 points, including 22 goals, in 56 games in 2020-2021. He has four seasons remaining on his contract, which has an impact of $7 million per season on the payroll.

While Kane is an excellent hockey player who would please many clubs on the ice, the Sharks are bound to have trouble finding a new home for him. Generally speaking, his off-ice issues often become more prominent within an organization, which has been the case in the past, most notably with the Thrashers/Jets. It is this type of situation that may scare off teams that could potentially be interested in his services.
