“An investigation of San Jose Sharks forward Evander Kane over allegations he violated the NHL’s COVID-19 protocols centers around a fake vaccination card he allegedly submitted, sources tell Front Office Sports.

Punishments for violating COVID protocols are not specifically spelled out, but the NHL makes it clear that a “lack of compliance will result in significant Club and individual sanctions, including potential forfeiture of games, fines and reimbursements of expenses, loss of draft choices, and/or ineligibility for participation in training activities.”

Beyond possible NHL sanctions, using a fake vaccination card is illegal both in the U.S. and Canada.”

The NHL declined to comment on the story.

Kane has missed all five of the Sharks’ preseason games and his status for the team’s regular-season opener on Oct. 16th against the Winnipeg Jets is uncertain.
