CHN Puck Links: Evander Kane files for Bankruptcy



Evander Kane

Happy Tuesday. Avs practice at Ball Arena this morning at 10:30 and yours truly will be there. Some fun stuff planned for coverage later on Colorado Hockey Now. But first, some around-the-horn hockey links, starting off with an unfortunate one about San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane:

  • Kane, according to court records in California, has filed for Chapter 7 personal bankruptcy. Kane, it is said, has a whopping $26.8 million in liabilities. (San Jose Hockey Now)
  • Keep in mind, Kane signed a seven-year, $49 million contract just three years ago.
  • In a Zoom call with media Monday in which Gary Bettman officially announced the NHL Outdoors at Lake Tahoe, which will include the Avalanche, he told reporters that the NHL and its teams are going to lose more money playing the 2021 NHL season than they would’ve had they shuttered the season. Bettman tried to stress that the league is doing this for the game and the fans but as longtime NHL columnist Ken Campbell pointed out, there was plenty of ulterior motive by the league here.
