In an Instagram post on Saturday evening, Evander Kane's wife has accused the San Jose Sharks forward of gambling on his own NHL games.

In the post, Anna Kane also accused the NHLer of taking vacations and partying while she and his baby are at home without enough money for formula.

"How does the NHL let a compulsive gambling addict still play when he's obviously throwing games with bookies to win money?" the social media post said.

Back in January, Kane filed for bankruptcy, claiming $26.8 million in debt. Later in the year, Kane was hit with a $15-million lawsuit from Professional Bank due to "punitive and exemplary damages based on the fraud of Defendant Kane... ten times the amount of the compensatory damages."

"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 NHL's statement on Saturday evening said. "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."

""The San Jose Sharks have been in contact today with the (NHL) about the serious allegations made against Evander Kane," the Sharks said in a statement. "We support a full and transparent investigation into the situation to maintain the integrity of the game and consistency with our team values."

On Sunday, Kane released a statement through social media:
