Blackhawks Confirm Patrick Kane Will Attend Training Camp

Editor's Note: NBC Chicago will live stream the Blackhawks press conference at 2 p.m. CT Thursday

Patrick Kane will attend Blackhawks training camp this week, the team confirmed Wednesday.

Kane was listed on the roster of players set to attend camp. 

A spokesman for the team said "all players listed on the roster released are expected to attend camp."

In addition, Kane's agent, Pat Brisson, said Kane "is expected to report to the Blackhawks training camp on time, just as all other members of the Blackhawks current roster."

There were questions surrounding whether Kane would be in attendance amid reports of an investigation into an alleged assault involving Kane at his New York home.

The Blackhawks will begin practices for the 2015-16 season at the Compton Family Ice Arena in South Bend, with their first practice slated for Friday. The team will also conduct two more practices at the university on the 19th and 20th of the month before coming back to Chicago for their annual Training Camp Festival at the United Center on Sept. 21.

All three practices will be open to the public, with tickets going on sale at a later date for the workouts.

This marks the third consecutive year the Chicago Blackhawks will open their training camp at the University of Notre Dame.

The Blackhawks could potentially have a Notre Dame product playing on the NHL roster this season, as Vincent Hinostroza (who signed an entry level deal with the Blackhawks back in the spring) hails from the Fighting Irish hockey program.
