At least five teams contacted the Chicago Blackhawks following the news of Patrick Kane's sexual assault allegations.
The right winger is under investigation for allegedly raping a woman at his Hamburg home.
Kane, 26, is entering the first year of an eight-year, $84-million contract that was signed in July 2014. He has not been charged with a crime or been suspended from the team.
On Aug. 6, The Buffalo News was the first to report that Kane was under investigation for an alleged sexual assault that took place on Aug. 2. Kane has reportedly met with New York authorities who are investigating the rape allegations against the Blackhawks star.
The Blackhawks issued a statement on Aug. 6 in response to the allegations saying, “We are aware of the matter and are in the process of gathering information. It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
Blackhawks training camp is set to begin on Sept. 18 at the University of Notre Dame's Compton Family Ice Arena.
