The National Hockey League (NHL) has announced it will launch an investigation into claims that San Jose Sharks’ Evander Kane placed wagers on NHL games.
The allegations were made by Kane’s wife, who alleged via an Instagram post that the 30-year old left wing is “obviously throwing games to win money”.
An NHL statement said: “The League was made aware this evening of a post on social media alleging that San Jose Sharks Player Evander Kane bet on NHL games. The integrity of our game is paramount and the League takes these allegations very seriously.
“We intend to conduct a full investigation and will have no further comment at this time.”
