On Friday, April 27th, 2018, the NHL suspended San Jose Sharks’ forward Evander Kane for one game in the NHL playoffs against the Las Vegas Golden Knights. The reason why? Well, on Thursday, April 26th, 2018 during game one of the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, late in the third period as the sharks were trailing 7-0, Evander Kane gave Las Vegas Golden Knights player Pierre-Edouard Bellemare a cross-check to the face.

The hearing for Evander Kane happened on Friday after Evander Kane got out of practice.

Before the suspension was announced, Sharks head coach Pete DeBoer said, “It’s difficult, but it’s not. He also said, “It’s like an  injury. If he’s out, it’s the next man up and we’ll stick somebody else in there. It doesn’t change our preparation.”

This was a huge loss for the San Jose Sharks. They won a very tough game on Saturday without Evander Kane in double overtime in game two vs Las Vegas in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
