Sharks waive Kane over contract breach, AHL COVID violation originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The Sharks have placed Evander Kane on unconditional waivers with the intent to terminate his deal over a breach of contract and violation of AHL COVID-19 protocols, the team announced Saturday morning.
Kane had not played for the Sharks' AHL squad, the Barracuda, since Dec. 22 after entering COVID-19 protocols. The 30-year-old reportedly was symptomatic, but had apparently re-joined the team on Thursday.
He played in five AHL games after returning from a 21-game NHL suspension for violating the league's COVID-19 protocols.
The Sharks are scheduled to play the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night at 4 p.m. PT.
