NHL player suspended for 21 games after trying to submit a fake Covid vaccination card

Evander Kane, a forward with the San Jose Sharks, is out for 21 games after turning in a fake Covid vaccination card to his team and the National Hockey League. Officials were not fooled; Kane is apparently apologetic.

I would like to apologize to my teammates, the San Jose Sharks organization, and all Sharks fans for violating the NHL COVID protocols,” said Kane in a statement released by the NHLPA. I made a mistake, one I sincerely regret and take responsibility for. During my suspension, I will continue to participate in counseling to help me make better decisions in the future. When my suspension is over, I plan to return to the ice with great effort, determination, and love for the game of hockey.”

None of this is something Kane said. He is only sorry he got caught.

He should be suspended for the season without pay, but that’s just me and I don’t care about hockey or the NHL.
