“NHL player Evander Kane has been suspended, submitting fake Covid-19 vaccine card.”
According to Front Office Sports and ESPN, which cited anonymous sources, the National Hockey League has imposed Evander Kane of the San Jose Sharks a 21-game unpaid suspension following an inquiry into whether he submitted a false Covid-19 immunization card.

“I will continue to participate in counseling during my suspension to help me make better decisions in the future,” Kane stated. “I intend to return to the rink with great work, determination, and love for the game of hockey once my ban is through.”

He also suited up for five WHL post-season games, being originally called up for the playoffs after Giants forward Tim Kraus was suspended for game three of the opening round. He later appeared in two Memorial Cup games, tallying an assist, as part of the Giants’ 2007 Memorial Cup championship.
Kane finished his second WHL season with 48 goals and 96 points, fourth in League scoring. He surpassed Adam Courchaine’s team record of 43 goals in a single season, set in 2002–03. Second, in team scoring to Pierro-Zabotel’s 115 points, the line-mates finished one-two in all-time Giants’ single-season scoring as Pierro-Zabotel and Kane both surpassed Gilbert Brulé’s previous 87-point mark.
Kane received WHL West First Team All-Star honors along with teammates Pierro-Zabotel and Jonathon Blum. In the subsequent 2009 playoffs, after the Giants swept the Prince George Cougars in the first round, Kane scored a double-overtime game-winner to force a seventh game in the second round against the Spokane Chiefs.
