Patrick Kane's agent discussed the assault allegations made against the Chicago Blackhawks star in a new interview, saying that he believes the 26-year-old is innocent.
Kane’s agent Pat Brisson told Sportsnet that the athlete talks to him on a daily basis and has "always been honest with me."
"I do believe what he tells me at the same time and I believe he's innocent in this whole thing," Brisson said.
Brisson said it has been hard seeing people make assumptions over the case.
"The hardest part is to see people jumping at the conclusions that he's done this, he's done that," Brisson said.
Several media outlets in Buffalo have reported that a woman accused Kane of assaulting her at his home last month, but the Hamburg Police Department will only confirm that they are investigating an alleged incident at Kane's home.
A grand jury investigation into the allegations was postponed Tuesday, according to multiple reports.
Kane has not been charged with any crime.
